Hi Francy, thanks for reaching out to amicable. If you have lived in England or Wales for a minimum of six months then you should be to get divorced here. You have to let the Home Office know when you divorce or separate from your partner if your visa is based on your relationship. For more information, click here. The normal starting point is a 50/50 split, however, this will depend on various factors and whether you plan on making your financial arrangements legally binding through a consent order. Book in a call with us if you would like more advice on this.
