I have now had my Certificate of entitlement to a decree come back and the court date as 9th July, a couple of questions...
1. Can I then apply for the Absolute 6 weeks and 1 day from this date? Or do I get another notice/date once the court hearing is over?
2. When can I put a Clean BreakConsent Order form into place, from the 9th July as this is the date given or again do I have to wait for another date?
The Petitioner can apply for the Absolute 6 weeks and 1 day after the Nisi has been pronounced. The respondent can apply for the absolute after that time is up but must wait another 3 months I think. Am sure you can apply for Consent Order after nisi date but someone else with more knowledge will no doubt post an answer.
The Consent and Absolute can be done on the same date.
I think the respondent can apply for Absolute a date 6weeks 1day after the date the Applicant could have applied for it,if the Applicant hasn''t done so.
The applicant can apply six weeks and one day from Nisi.The respondent must wait a further three months.
Once you have the Nisi the CO can be sent to court to be sealed (stamped) once that is done the Absolute should be applied for in time.
The problem with sending the CO and absolute at the same time is the judge may allow the absolute but question the CO, if this happens your divorced but with no sealed CO which can cause problems sometimes, far from often though, most solicitors will wait until the order is sealed first.
