There has been significant publicity regarding the new no fault divorce regime since it came into law on 6th April 2022.

Nearly all the publicity has centred around how it works and what to do if you wish to apply for one.

However, there's only really one question that the majority of people want the answer to:

How much is it going to cost me if I want a Solicitor to do it?

The process under the new law has been simplified, meaning that we're in a position to provide extremely reasonable rates. We can away take the hassle and stress of doing your own divorce - we can do it for you!

We're offering a special fixed fee available for a limited length of time. We can facilitate your ‘no fault’ divorce for just £500 + VAT.

The new law now means that there's only one basis on which you can get a divorce - irretrievable breakdown.

The aim of the divorce is to make it more amicable; it's a ‘no blame’ divorce. The final divorce takes place 26 weeks from issuing the Divorce Petition - now known as a Divorce Application.

New Divorce Language

There has been a significant change of language in the new divorce rules, making it more user friendly and approachable. The main changes of language are as follows:

  • Divorce Petition is now Divorce Application.
  • Petitioner is now the Applicant.
  • Decree Nisi is now a Conditional Order.
  • Decree Absolute is now the Final Divorce Order.

The whole divorce process now takes place online and is by way of unilateral notice from one party to the other.

The Procedure

The procedure is as follows:

  1. The Applicant completes the application form. This is ‘issued’ by the court (given a case number and stamped) and is sent to the other party (the Respondent). The Respondent has a limited time to respond to the divorce.
  2. Twenty weeks after the start of the proceedings, the Applicant can apply for the Conditional Order - as long as a response has been received.
  3. Six weeks after this is announced, the final divorce order can be applied for.

The downside is that financial matters may not have been resolved due to the short timescale. This can have implications for both parties.

Therefore, it's more important than ever to obtain legal advice to resolve financial matters from an approved divorce lawyer. That way you're protected financially as much as possible with your divorce.
