After one year of marriage. You cannot get divorced in the first year.
There is one ground – the marriage has irretrievably broken down. There is no blaming anymore, the system in the UK is “no fault divorce”. This keeps the process more amicable for both of you.
A divorce can take between 6-8 months if not disputed, from issuing the petition to the Decree Absolute. If the divorce or finances are disputed, then this timescale can be longer depending on how long it takes for these issues to be resolved.
It is common place that a divorce will take place without there ever being a need to attend court, it’s rare that the parties to a divorce been to attend court (unless in respect of financial settlement).
If you have agreed your divorce, your divorce will be processed through the court as a paperwork exercise. If you have not agreed or are unable to agree your financial arrangements, you may need to attend court. However, early negotiations with the support of a Solicitor, can prevent the involvement of the court at all.
Contrary to what you see in the media, there is only one route to get a divorce and there is no way to fast-track it or get a “quickie divorce”. The courts oversee the entire process, so we are on the courts timetable.
We offer a fixed fee and you can also pay in instalments. No hidden costs.
No, not necessarily, it’s personal preference but not essential.
Below is a brief timeline to the divorce process:
- Step 1: the divorce application is completed and sent to the court;
- Step 2: the court issues the application, and if applicable, the Respondent confirms that they have received a copy of the application by completing the Acknowledgement of Service form;
- Step 3: the middle stage of the divorce, the Conditional Order , is granted;
- Step 4: the Final Order is granted, bringing the marriage to an end.
