A Decree of Divorce dissolves a marriage. In order for a Court to grant a divorce in Ireland it must be satisfied that the parties have lived apart for four of the previous five years and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.


The Court may also make orders in relation to custody of and access to children, the payment of maintenance and lump sums, the transfer of property, the extinguishment of succession rights, pension rights etc.

The Court may review any previous arrangements made by the parties within – Eg. A Separation Agreement if the circumstances of either party has changed.

A Decree of Divorce may not be reversed.
