decree absolute was created by misspink
my partner has been representing himself for his divorce. he and his wife made an agreement, and the consent order was stamped at the courts, then the money he transferred to her solicitor which has now been passed on to his wife. so the financial settlement has been made, however he''s not sure whether he has to do something to now get his decree absolute , or does it come through automatically?

He needs to apply for the Absolute - it''s form D36. If he is the petitioner , then as long as it''s more than 6 weeks and one day since the Nisi he can apply - or if he''s the respondent then it''s a minimum waiting period of 3 months and one day since the Nisi.
