Sent my application off yesterday for my decree absolute. It's been signed for. Any idea how long it will be until I get the decree absolute back. Will it just be a certificate?

It'll be an A4 piece of paper and it'll be stamped by the court, it won't be like a card certificate.

How long depends on how backlogged the court is and whether it's been over a year since the nisi.

Mine took around 6 weeks

They usually only take a couple of weeks (am a family lawyer)

I waited about 2 months. It wasn't very long it might of been slightly less.
