Difference Between Scottish And English Divorce Law

Is divorce different in Scotland?

What is the difference between Scottish and English divorce law? Although England, Wales, Northern Ireland & Scotland are all part of the UK, Scotland has its own distinct judicial system and its own jurisdiction.

Usually, most people who reside in Scotland will be able to get a divorce in Scotland, under Scottish law. However, you can only get a divorce in Scotland if you meet the residency rules about where you live.

As people move around the UK for many reasons the residency rules on divorce applications can become a grey area. Consequently, it’s important to be aware of the law on divorce in Scotland compared to the divorce law in England if you plan to file for divorce.

The difference on divorce & cohabitation laws in Scotland could affect how quickly you are able to divorce. Also, and probably more importantly, there could be far reaching financial implications of whether the divorce proceedings are petitioned in England or Scotland.
