Filing for Divorce:

To qualify for a Divorce, your marriage must be legally recognised in England and Wales and you are required to have been married for at least one year.

Other stipulations regarding the Divorce process include:

  • You must file a petition for divorce. This is the first step in gaining permission to divorce your spouse. You will be asked to detail the reasons.
  • If your spouse agrees to the divorce, you will receive documentation known as a Decree Nisi. You are then obliged to undergo a 6 week cooling off period.
  • In cases where a spouse is of unknown whereabouts or where a spouse does not agree to the divorce, you may require expert tailored legal assistance.
  • Once the above requirements have been met, you may apply for a Decree Absolute. This decree brings your marriage to an end.

Although you may think your Divorce will be straight forward, major sticking points and unforeseen contentious issues could halt proceedings.
