Decree Nisi was created by Hellosarah123

I've just divorced online on the gov website with my husband(ex). Once that's done please could anyone tell me if there is a next step or we have to do anything? And is the decree nisi issued from the courts/judge?
Kind Regards

Filling in the online petition is just step one.

Next step is for the Respondent to complete the acknowledgement of service, then you need to apply for the Decree Nisi.

The petitioner can apply for Decree Absolute six weeks and one day after the Decree Nisi. The Respondent can apply after a further 3 months.

It is a good idea to get the financial settlement sorted out before Decree Absolute. You can get a legally binding financial settlement once you have a Decree Nisi in place.
