    The Uncontested Divorce Procedure

    When your divorce is uncontested, the procedure to obtain a divorce is relatively straightforward and can be completed quickly with a low amount of stress.

    There is rarely a need to instruct solicitors in uncontested divorce cases other than receiving initial legal advice, which can ensure you keep the costs of your divorce to a minimum.


    File a D8 divorce petition

    To start divorce proceedings regardless of how you decide to process the divorce requires the completion of form D8. The divorce petition is the main document in any divorce and includes all of your personal and marital details, such as grounds for divorce.


    Acknowledgement of Service

    The courts will send your spouse a copy of the divorce papers, which they must sign and return to the courts. This is usually done within 7 days when couples are in agreement with the divorce.


    Decree Nisi

    You now must apply for permission to divorce, which is done by applying for the decree nisi. This stage of the divorce process essentially confirms that the Judge can see no reason in law why you can’t divorce.


    Decree Absolute

    The final decree requires a further application to the courts. This time, it’s the decree absolute, which is the final decree in proceedings and is the certificate that confirms your marriage has ended.
