You can just tick the first box. They''ve made a right pigs ear of this section on the new forms. It was so simple before.
1) D8: Part3: Jurisdiction:we were married abroad but have lived in England since(6 years).
a) Should Article 3(1) be ticked?
b) AND The Petitioner and respondent are both habitually resident in England and Wales?
You can just write that the marriage broke down on --DATE-- and that you have not lived together as husband and wife since.
2) D8: Filing on basis of 2 yrs separation with consent; Part 6:Statement of case, there is a note where it says:''In all cases, please state briefly any relevant details......'' - Does this section, still needs to be filled?
You should tick all boxes except maintenance pending suit. This is just a formality, in case negotiations break down. It doesn''t mean you have to pursue any of these claims.
3) D8: Prayer -> (3) - Financial Order - I have agreed in principal with my STBX that we will discuss the child maintenance and other financials between us and get a final Consent Order drawn by a solicitor. So, DO i have to tick any of the boxes in this section?
Yes, but you don''t fill in D80 until after you''ve got the D10 back from the respondent.
4) D80D: (Statement of Affidavit 2 yrs consent) - Can the date of separation(point4) and date marriage came to an end(point5) be the same?
3 months is the Absolute minimum if everyone returns paperwork as soon as they receive it, and the courts are not too busy.
It has been mentioned that it takes about three months from start to get a Decree Absolute in case of uncontested divorce where all arrangements (financial and children) are agreed. Is this true?
