As of 6th April 2022, a ‘Decree Nisi’ is now known as a ‘Conditional Order.’

How do I apply for a decree absolute?

Before you apply for your decree absolute, you must first ensure you wait at least 43 days (six weeks and one day) following the pronouncement of your decree nisi. If you send an application too soon, you run the risk of the court rejecting your application.

To make an application, you must complete a D36 decree absolute application form. This form will request the court to make a decree nisi final (or absolute.)

If the court is satisfied and finds no reason not to grant the divorce, they will send the decree absolute to you and your former spouse.
