  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Separation of two years (agreed upon by both parties)
  • Separation of five years (without an agreement)
  • Desertion of two years

Afterwards, the proceedings continue as it would with a traditional divorce and one of the parties can be eligible for financial support.
