The Channel Islands are comprised of two jurisdictions, Jersey and Guernsey. Guernsey law has a standardised system for divorce trial proceedings.
Filing for Divorce
Guernsey law requires a petition for divorce, affidavit in support of the petition, statement regarding arrangements for children, reconciliation statement and a certified copy of the marriage certificate in order to begin the divorce proceedings.
Guernsey laws requires the respondent of the petition to provide additional forms in the instance that adultery is alleged. This includes a petition and possibly a cross-petition, which are much like the pleadings in a civil case.
The most common reason that divorce goes to trial is for the division of assets. Guernsey law includes a "pre-action protocol" to help the two parties of the divorce to prepare for proceedings by providing guidelines for the division of assets.
