Time scales was created by clairehaines
Just wondered if someone could tell me rough timescales, I know it will depend on how busy courts are etc but once a court receives the divorce petition how long roughly does it take for them to process the paperwork an once respondent returns forms etc till the decree nisi is issued???
I know after that you have to wait 6 weeks before applying for the absolute but just wondering how long till were at the stage of waitin the last 6 weeks.

There are no negotiations needed respondent agrees, it''s just a case of completing the forms and sending them in respondent doing his bit then getting the nisi .
Any idea how long that all could take?

Thank you

As a very rough indication 3-4 months,the biggest problem is getting the forms right, make a mistake, add at least 6 weeks.

Thank you both!
2 months sounds good!!! I might be completely unrealistic but I''ve completed the forms and they seemed very straight forward....we''re 2 years separated both agree, there are no assets or financial issues to sort it is literally just the legal fact of ending the marriage so I''m really hoping its quite straight forward and relatively quick :)
