Gibraltar Divorce Lawyers

If your marriage has broken down beyond any hope of reconciliation, you may decide that the best option is to commence divorce proceedings. Amber Law can help guide you on the grounds on which a divorce petition can be filed and take you through the process in an efficient and cost effective manner, sensitive to you and your family’s needs.

Grounds for Divorce under Gibraltar Law

Under Gibraltar law, some of the most common grounds to petition for divorce are:

1. The fact that you and your spouse have been living apart for a continuous period of 2 years (which may be evidenced by a Separation/ Financial Agreement)

2. The fact that you and your spouse have been living apart for a continuous period of 3 years (which may be evidenced by a Separation/ Financial Agreement)

3. That your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with him or her (for example if there has been physical or mental abuse towards you and/ or any child of the family)

4. Adultery

There are restrictions on bringing petitions for divorce within the first two years of marriage, though there are some exceptions to this rule.

Gibraltar law also provides for annulments.

Amber Law also offers a sign posting service for clients who welcome counselling and who would benefit from some form of emotional or other support and guidance at this difficult time.
