A petition is sent to the court setting out your grounds. The court will issue papers and send them to the other side.

The other side must return an acknowledgement of service form within 7 days. Assuming they do, you can then apply for Decree Nisi of Divorce or a Conditional Order in Dissolution Proceedings.

Six weeks from the date of any Decree Nisi or Conditional Order you can then apply for Decree Absolute of Divorce or a Final Order in Dissolution Proceedings.

The whole process takes between about 4 to 6 months.
