How long does the divorce process take?


There is now a minimum period of 20 weeks between the start of proceedings, or when a court issues application, and when the applicant may apply for Conditional Order. There is a current minimum time frame of 6 weeks between Conditional Order and when the order can be made final. With an overall minimum timeframe of 6 months.


What is a Final Order, and how long does it take?

Final Order, the decree that dissolves the marriage, can be applied for 6 weeks and one day for the date of Conditional Order, the middle stage of divorce.

Delay can be caused if forms are incorrectly completed and then rejected by the court or upon application for Conditional Order the Judge is not satisfied with the evidence filed in support.

Tozers' specialist family law solicitors offer a fixed fee for dealing with the divorce for a applicant which is currently £600 plus VAT.
