Frequently Asked Questions
The process now takes a minimum of 26 weeks. Some cases can take longer than 26 weeks – common reasons for different time scales include:-
- difficulties with the arrangements for any children of the family,
- financial requirements which mean that the divorce cannot be completed or it is inadvisable to complete until a financial settlement is reached; or
- where the Respondent to the proceedings avoids dealing with the divorce papers which means that there is a delay, and extra costs.
There is a requirement that the Applicant takes every step necessary to draw the Respondent’s attention to the fact that an application for divorce has been filed. In addition to the above, there are also inbuilt timings which have to be considered – for example, the Respondent has 7 days to respond to the application once it is received and there is a statutory period of 6 weeks and one day from the pronouncement of the Conditional Order (formerly Decree Nisi) before the Applicant is able to apply for the Final Order (formerly Decree Absolute). If the Applicant does not apply for the Final Order then the Respondent is not permitted to do so for a further three months from the date at which the Applicant could have first applied.
