Can I do it? was created by redracingcar5
Greetings all, new here.
Just wondering if someone would be able to offer some advice or guidance please.
I live in Scotland and have been separated from ex wife for 8 years. Recently have settled all the finances involving a solicitor, with no problems whatsoever, all amicable. Cannot believe how much that all cost though!!
I was wondering if I would be able to apply to the courts for a divorce and do it myself?
Is this easy to do? A friend said it should be all straight forward, but thought I would ask here for advice.
If anyone can give me a rough idea/guide as to what it would entail I would be so grateful.
Thank you in advance.

If you don't have children under the age of 16 then you can use the simplified procedure. It is straight forward and you can do this yourself. www.wikivorce.com/divorce/DIY-Divorce-Re...vorce-Procedure.html

Hello Rubytuesday,
Thank you for your quick reply.
No children all grown up now.

I will be visiting the link this afternoon, hopefully it will all fall into place (gulp)!

Might be back if I need any help if that's ok?

Many thanks
