What happens if my spouse refuses to get divorced?


Your spouse can only dispute a divorce by challenging the jurisdiction of the Court or the validity of the marriage.

As you do not lay blame on each other there is no ability for your spouse to defend the divorce just because they do not like the fact that you seek to divorce them. However, there can still be acrimony, so it is always best to provide a draft of your application to your spouse before submitting the application to the court.
