    How Do I File For Divorce?

    The Divorce Application

    The Divorce Application can be completed using the Court’s online divorce portal. You will need to upload a copy of your Marriage Certificate and pay the Court fee. These documents are sent to the other spouse (the Respondent).

    The Respondent has 8 days to file a receipt to the Divorce Application. If the Respondent does not dispute the Application, (this is the position in the vast majority of cases), the Applicant (the person who filed for the divorce) can then apply for the Conditional Order.

    The Court will then make a date for the pronouncement of the Conditional Order. The Conditional Order is the Order of the Court which actually states that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

    After waiting a minimum period of 20 weeks from starting the process, the Applicant can apply for and obtain the Final Divorce Order from the Court.

    The Final Divorce Order should be made more or less immediately by the Court. The Final Divorce Order is the Order of the Court which actually dissolves the marriage.
