It is important to separate the process of divorce from the issues of your children and finances, which will be dealt with separately by the Court.
Since April 2022 the law in relation to divorce has changed. The divorce/dissolution application needs only to detail that there has been an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage. As from April 2022 there is no longer a need to particularise the facts by citing adultery, unreasonable behaviour, or periods of separation. The new rules also set out new terminology. What was referred to in the past as the divorce petition now becomes the Application, the word Petitioner replaced by Applicant. The old name of Decree Nisi becomes a Conditional Order, and the words Decree Absolute are now Final Divorce Order.
