Divorce in Ireland since 1996 with the passing of the Family Law (Divorce) Act, it is now possible for a spouse to obtain a Divorce Decree in the Irish Courts which allows either of the spouses to remarry.
The Act sets out the criteria which must be satisfied in order for the Court to grant such a Decree. This includes being:
- Separated for four out of the last five years.
- The welfare of the spouse and dependant children must be seen to.
- There is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
