We are an expert online divorce service - therefore we have considerably fewer overheads than a high street solicitor - this keeps our costs down to a minimum, allowing us to pass on our savings to our customers.
Since 1968 there has been just one ground for divorce - irretrievable breakdown of marriage. However, you have to prove irretrievable breakdown in one of five different ways. These are: adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion for two years, separation for two years where the other party consents, and separation for five years (no consent needed).
You would need to request the court allow the court bailiff to personally serve the divorce documents on the respondent. The court bailiff would then swear an affidavit confirming service. Should the respondent still not respond you proceed to the next stage, (the application for special procedure) whereby you would use the sworn affidavit as an exhibit. You will have to pay the court a fixed fee for this service.
After service you must allow 29 days for the respondent to file a defence (called an "answer" in divorce proceedings) and, if they do not, you can then apply for the decree nisi (the first divorce decree).
We can provide you with a "Request for Service by Court Bailiff" form.
In this case the marriage certificate needs to be translated into English by an expert who would then have it sworn. You then need to lodge this translation and statement with the court alongside other documents.
You may be exempt. You would need to complete the fee exemption form, providing evidence of your means. The court staff will make an assessment as to whether you qualify. Click here to access the "Fee Remission" form.
No, you do not - but it is a good idea to do so. If you ignore the financial issues and remarry, you may lose the right to have the matrimonial financial affairs reviewed by the court. Many people do not realise that your ex. can make a claim against your estate after you die. There are special rules, and a claim will not succeed in every case, but it is wise to get an agreement on finances and if appropriate obtain a 'Clean Break' Order (see our Personal Plus Service™ page for more information).
As with financial issues, you do not have to agree everything regarding the children but it would be a good idea to do so. To get your divorce you have to show that the arrangements for the children are satisfactory or the best that can be devised in the circumstances. In the context of divorce proceedings you can apply for orders relating to the finances for the children and orders relating to residence and contact but the court is reluctant to grant such orders unless it is absolutely necessary. You will have to show why it is impossible to agree.
Yes, provided that whilst living in the same house you have lived completely separate lives. This means that you have slept in separate bedrooms, done your own domestic chores, have cooked, eaten and socialised separately and divided all bills.
