Each divorce follows the same process and there is still no “quickie divorce” despite no-fault divorce being introduced on the 6 April 2022.

If your marriage was legally recognised in the country your marriage took place, you can commence a divorce in England if you are habitually resident or domiciled in England or Wales.

It is rare to have to attend court for a divorce particularly how it is now no longer possible to defend an application for divorce.

Yes you need your original marriage certificate and an official translation if this is not in English. You can usually obtain certified copies but you can apply to court to dispense with filing a marriage certificate in certain circumstances.

A divorce takes a minimum of 30 weeks. This process can however be lengthier if there are financial matters to also resolve.

There is no time bar if you wish to marry in England or Wales but you will need to check the country in which you intend to marry but you must be divorced and have your Final Order (previously known as Decree Absolute).
