I have been seperated from my husband for 2.5 years and both agree to divorce.

He moved out of our home splitting everything we had which wasnt much just furniture and then roughly 6 months later our home was repossessed due to the split and recession at the time. We had no savings neither have pensions or anything else financial.

We do have a 7 year old child, we have agreement in place regarding when he sees her and how much he pays which has been working well for 2.5 years.

We want to divorce, both agree and know we can divorce based on living apart for 2 years. As we have nothing to split or fight over and it''s literally just now to leagally end the marriage we want to do it ourselves via the court. we have read up on the forms and cost which were splitting and know what we have to do.

However, could someone help with just one question I have???

I have read about clean break orders, in our situation would this be required? I presume yes as it would stop any future claims on money if I won the lottery for example (I live in hope )
If it is required, as we will be doing everything ourselves, where do we get one drawn up do solicitors do them for a fee without doing all the other bits and also when does it get dealt with after applied for the nisi before the absolute??

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi & welcome to Wikivorce,

Have a look at the Wikivorce service here:

www.wikivorce.com/divorce/Solicitor-Managed-Divorce/52.html

The fixed fee is not including Court fees - but if you are in agreement this is probably your cheapest option.

hi,
Thanks for your reply, im just going to complete the forms and send them in rather then paying more money to have someone else do it.

Thanks again :-)
