    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does an average divorce take?

    A typical divorce should take between 7 to 8 months depending on a range of factors, most notably, where you live and how you choose to file for divorce, e.g. via postage or online.

    How long does a typical divorce take?

    What is classed as a quick divorce in 2024?

    Under the new no-fault divorce system, the fastest time you can expect a divorce application to be completed is 7 months and a few days (providing all mandatory steps are taken promptly).

    Before introducing the new divorce law, a quick divorce was considered between 4-5 months in England and Wales when filing for divorce online.

    What do I need for a quick divorce?

    The criteria for a quick and simple divorce usually boils down to the following things:

    • You both need to be in agreement on the divorce
    • You have an address for your ex-husband or wife
    • You have decided if you’re filing solely or jointly
    • You have no financial or children arrangements to make or you are dealing with them after the divorce

    Can I divorce immediately?

    No, in the UK, you cannot divorce immediately. While you can separate immediately after getting married, to get divorced there is a minimum time frame set by law.

    You must have been married for at least one year before you can apply for a divorce. Once you apply for a divorce, there is a mandatory waiting period.

    The process includes a 20-week reflection period from the time the divorce application is made until a conditional order is pronounced, and then a further 6-week period before the divorce can be finalised with a final order.

    This means that even in the most straightforward cases, a divorce will take at least 26 weeks to complete.

    Can I get divorced without going to court?

    You can get a divorce without going to court if you and your spouse agree on all matters related to the divorce, such as child custody, support, and division of property.

    This is known as an uncontested divorce. However, if there are disagreements, you may need to attend court to resolve these issues.

    It’s worth mentioning that the majority of divorce applications (99%) go through without the need for either party attending the court.

    Do I need a solicitor to get a quick divorce?

    Since the introduction of no-fault divorce, many couples are now wondering whether they need a solicitor to get divorced.

    While it is possible to manage your own divorce proceedings, having a solicitor can help ensure that all legal aspects are correctly handled, and they can provide valuable advice on complex matters.

    If you are aiming for a quick divorce you might choose to proceed without a solicitor and opt to apply for divorce online.

    Can my ex-partner delay the divorce?

    Yes, an ex-partner can potentially delay the divorce process in the UK. If they refuse to cooperate or deliberately avoid responding to the divorce petition, this can cause delays. However, there are legal mechanisms in place to deal with such situations.

    If an ex-partner does not respond to the divorce petition, you can apply for a Conditional Order (decree nisi) and then a Final Order (decree absolute), even if they do not consent, provided certain conditions are met.

    It’s also possible to apply to the court for a financial settlement if there are significant delays.

    Has no-fault divorce affected timescales?

    Many couples believe that the introduction of no-fault divorce is going to mean that a divorce can be instant.

    This however is simply not the case. The government has introduced a 20-week reflection period plus a 6-week cooling-off period into the divorce procedure, which means even the simplest of cases are going to take at least 7 months.

    So, in actual fact, getting a divorce now is slower for most people compared with the previous timescales.
