Yes you can do it in 2 yrs separation as long as you both agree.

Have you spoken to your ex about this?

I used quickiedivorce.com and it was very easy and straightforward. I think it cost around £200 for the divorce and financial agreement plus the court fees which were around £450. It took around 18 weeks, I reverted to my maiden name at the start of the process too, I used deed poll because you can purchase multiple certificates meaning that you’re not waiting to have your divorce certificate returned before sending it off. It was much quicker that way. I didn’t have any issues with Quickie divorce, they have a helpline to answer any queries but the forms are actually quite easy to fill in. Good luck. smile

I think you can also just apply to the courts and do it yourself as well. There should be guidance online. smile

XH and I didn’t use solicitors. Cost whatever the court fee was at the time (think it was £410 then which we split between us). We didn’t do a financial consent order as had v few assets and we agreed about the children.

You can download the forms from the gov uk site and it is pretty straightforward.

Yes can divorce yourself without paying solicitors. Cannot escape the court fee (which I think is now about £550).
Start here:
www.gov.uk/divorce
The one to issue the divorce, I would advise, is the one who is better at filling in forms and bureaucracy in general. It goes take a while, with various stages.

Did my own divorce. Do not use any “cheap” firms to help you. It is really straightforward if both parties agree to divorce. You start by filling form for divorce (somebody above already gave you the link), Court will send papers to the other party, they have to sign the papers and send it back to Court. Neither of you need to attend the court on the day. Everything is clearly explained in Court papers, they will write to you explaining every step and timelines. It is really not difficult. Good luck!

You can go back to your maiden name using a deed poll and you can download a free template and just get two people to sign it - you don’t need to go to a solicitor. Mine has been accepted by banks, passport office etc.

You can do it all yourself, I never involved a solicitor (nor did ExH). Gov.uk has all the info you need.
