Included in this service:

Form D36: Notice of application for decree nisi to be made absolute (Guidance Notes)
If you have petitioned (or have received a petition) for a divorce and the court has pronounced the 'decree nisi', you can use this document to apply for the 'decree absolute' which will legally end the marriage. If you are the petitioner, you must wait at least 6 weeks before sending this document to the court. If you are the respondent, and the petitioner has not already applied, you must wait at least 3 months and 6 weeks before sending this document to the court. Once the decree absolute has been granted, you and your ex-spouse will be able to marry or enter into a civil partnership. Note that a judicial separation does not require you to apply for a decree absolute. Please note that this is only suitable for use in England & Wales.

Form D8: Divorce/judicial separation petition (Guidance Notes)
This document is used to start divorce or judicial separation proceedings and is formally called a 'petition'. A divorce order brings a marriage to an end.

This document is only suitable for use in England & Wales.

If you have served a petition for divorce or judicial separation on your spouse on the ground of adultery, and they have agreed not to contest the petition, use this document to draw up a statement confirming the details of the petition. You must sign the statement and file it with the court. A district judge will then decide whether or not to grant the decree of divorce/judicial separation. This statement must be submitted with a duly completed and signed application for a decree nisi or judicial separation decree. If you have not yet completed such a document, you should do so now using our document 'Form D84: Application for decree nisi/judicial separation decree'. Please note that this document is only for use in England and Wales.

Form D84: Application for decree nisi/judicial separation decree (Guidance Notes)
Use this document to produce a completed Form D84, which must accompany the statement in support that you file with the court to confirm the details and grounds of your divorce/judicial separation petition. Once these documents together with the respondent’s acknowledgment of service are lodged with the court, the matter can be officially listed and a decision taken as to whether you will be granted the decree. Note that this procedure is only applicable where your spouse (the 'respondent') does not wish to contest the petition - therefore you can only use this document if this is the case. This document can only be used in England and Wales.
