You can obtain blank D8 divorce form from either your local county court office or online at the UK Government website. The form is in presented PDF format and can be completed on your computer or tablet, but cannot be saved before you print it out.
Anyone can file their own divorce forms, but unless you are good with legal forms and know at least the basics of divorce law and procedure which are contained in the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 ( as amended) and The Family Procedure Rules 2010, you may find that completing your own divorce petition is not as easy as you might think. The fact the Government make the forms available does not mean that getting a divorce or completing your divorce petition form will be easy.
There are not only the grounds for divorce to be considered, but also the divorce particulars if you are filing on unreasonable behaviour as your ground for the divorce.
The number of the divorce petition form is D8, the D stands for "divorce" and 8 is the sequential number of the list of forms contained in the divorce section.
If you make a mistake, and most self representing litigants do, the court is entitled to charge you an amendment fee of £120 and will order you to make amendments to the petition and re-file. At that point many people then have to hire a lawyer to sort out the mess.
Luckily, Divorce-Online is at hand to prepare your D8 divorce petition form, so that when you do file it at court, it will be 100% correct, or we have to pay the amendment fee, and of course it would not make good business sense for us to make mistakes.
