Firstly, you need to be aware that, in England and Wales, you cannot petition for divorce until you have been married for at least one year. Every divorce case is different, some will be more simple – and thus quicker – than others, but how fast you can finalise a divorce depends entirely on the circumstances surrounding it. Some key factors include:
A Decree Nisi, which is a legal order stating the date that the marriage will end, can be obtained after an average period of four to five months, although it could be much shorter or longer. A Decree Absolute, which is a document declaring the end of the marriage, is received six weeks after the date of the Decree Nisi.
Even in complex divorce cases, you can make sure you’re not wasting any time during preparations by enlisting the advice of a reputable divorce solicitor, who will offer guidance and support throughout every stage of your case. A trained solicitor will be able to assess your situation and give you appropriate advice on what to expect, so it is important that you seek legal expertise before entering into divorce proceedings.
