My wife and I have been married for 4 and a half years and have mutually come to the decision to divorce on the grounds of the two year separation (1 year apart at same address and 1 year living at different addresses).
We have no shared assets, no shared debt, no children and both have a similar income.
We see no reason to involve solicitors and will therefore be applying to the courts personally with the assistance of the Citizens Advice Bureau.
What I need to know is should I just be petitioning for the Decree or is there still a need to go through the financial arrangements? Also if we do need to apply for Ancillary Relief how do you go about stating that we are both perfectly happy with our existing independent circumstances?
