When will I be formally divorced?
You will be divorced, and free to re-marry, upon the granting of Decree Absolute. If you are the petitioner within the divorce, Decree Absolute can be applied for 6 weeks and 1 day after the pronouncement of the interim decree, Decree Nisi. If, however, you are the respondent and the petitioner has not yet made the application for Decree Absolute, you can apply a further 3 months after the petitioner’s timeframe.
The application for Decree Absolute is usually delayed until financial matters have been resolved.
