Help with apply decree absolute was created by divorce2373
Dear Sir/Madam,

I have got decree nisi a year ago and my financial settlement is concluded in July this year. current ly it is in the process of selling the house and carry out the pension share order.

Now I would like to apply decree [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url], should I just fill in D36 and post it to court?

Many thanks, Effie

Hi Effie

If you are the petitioner you can send the completed D36 to the court. If you are the Respondent there will be a fee to pay. You can ask for costs. If it has been more than a year since the decree nisi you will need a signed declaration that explains the delay ie that finances were being sorted and states that you have not lived as man and wife since the decree nisi and that there are no (further) children born of the marriage.
