Responding to a petition for divorce

You should take advice from a solicitor as soon as possible. You can get a clearer understanding of your options, and of what happens next, by speaking to a lawyer.

Did you receive a draft petition?

The Resolution Code of Conduct recommends that a draft petition is sent to the respondent. This draft can then be agreed between the parties before formal documents are filed. Sending out a draft version is not a legal requirement, and the petitioner may skip this stage. Reaching an agreement at this stage, however, can streamline the whole process.

What do you need to do as a respondent?

You will also receive an Acknowledge of Service document to complete, in addition to the petition itself. This form is a formality to confirm that you have received the petition and agree with its contents. You can opt to defend the case or ask for the petition to be corrected, if you do not agree with the reasons given for the divorce.

Divorce FAQs

Is it risky to cite unreasonable behaviour as the reason for a divorce?

It is recommended that both sides talk through the contents of a divorce petition informally first, before drafting a final version. This can help to avoid any arguments when the details of the "unreasonable behaviour" are printed in the formal petition.

Can you get a divorce in a Civil Partnership?

The dissolution process is similar to a divorce, but adultery cannot be cited as a reason for the legal separation. Like the decree nisi and decree absolute awarded in a divorce, a civil partnership is dissolved with first a "conditional order", and then a "final order" six months later.

Does it matter who starts the divorce process ?

No, this has no bearing on the process.

Do we have to appear In court In person ?

No.
