Hi, I often see reference to "1 day turn arounds" for processing Decree Absolute forms. I know there is a paper based process and a digital process but can't find any information on using the digital process. My ex submitted the request for decree absolute via the paper process but after talking to the court they say there is a 20 week delay on those at Bury currently. If there is also a digital process I'd like to find it! Does it depend on how the process was started? This has been going for years so the digital process didn't exist back then.
If your application was started on paper, then you can't switch to the online/digital service (which is on Gov.UK).
The most recent update (today) from BSE states "Applications for Decree Absolute are processed on the date of receipt, please allow 5 working days to ensure the order reaches you." So hopefully, you won't have to wait too long for your Absolute.
Thank you. I saw those timelines too and hoped it would be quick but the Decree Absolute form was received beginning of feb I did contact them via chat and got this 20 week estimate. It does seem strange as those 1 day and 5 day turnarounds are referred to a lot and, like you say in the automated email you get from Bury
