Before applying for a Divorce...
For us to make your application for a Divorce, we will need:
- The full name and address of you husband or wife.
- Your Marriage Certificate, either the original or a certified copy ( and if its not in English, a certified translation).
- If you have changed your name since you got married you will need proof of your name change, either a marriage certificate or deed poll.
- The court will need the current address of your husband or wife to send the divorce petition so you must try to provide it.
If your reason for divorce is Adultery and you name the person with whom your husband or wife committed the adultery, then they too will receive copies of the paperwork.
A fee must be paid to apply for a divorce, this fee is non refundable once the application has been issued. If you are on a low income or benefits you may be able to get help with the fees.
