Clean divorce?

My youngest sister got married less than a year ago. Things haven't worked out, she's been unfaithful (not proud of herself, not pushing a relationship there) and wants out. Her DH is gutted, wants to work things out but she feels that the problems started long before the actual wedding.

She feels sad, foolish, guilty, all sorts of mixed up feelings, but she wants out. She told him this week and I think he's finally accepting it.

She wants a clean break - no DC, his house etc. He's seeing a solicitor this week and I've urged her to see one too. She thinks she doesn't need one though.

Does she?

Probably not if she wants nothing out of it, and he's willing to sort out the divorce and a financial clean break.

Unless they lived together for a long time before marrying, then it would be considered a short marriage and they should both take out what they brought to the marriage

Ianal but I do know that you can't apply for a divorce until you've been married for a year, using a solicitor or not.
