Me and my wife have agreed to a D.I.Y divorce, do they need proof that we have been living apart for a year? if so what kind of proof will they need.
Thanks :)

Welcome to Wikivorce.

All that is required is the consent of the defender, and their signature on the SPA form. It''s a self-declaration basically.

Don''t forget, you will to get your birth certificate and your marriage certificate notorised, and your SPA signed by either a Notoriety Public (most solicitors are Notarys), a Justice of the Peace, or a Commissioner for Oaths. There is a court fee of £95 whihc needs to be paid when submitting your completed form and documents to the court.

Hi, how come you can divorce after a year apart? My ex and I split 2 years ago next month and are both consenting - I''m filling in the D8 but am worried that the court will find errors just to fleece me for more money.

My ex and I have no kids and no finances to argue about - we just want a quick divorce but its taking ages. Is there anybody on this site who would have a read through of my D8 for me? I''m a carer and on nearly minimum wage.

And the adverts for £39 Divorces are a load of horsesh*t!

You can divorce before 2 years for grounds of unreasonable behaviour or adultery
