How long does a Decree Absolute/Final Order take?

For divorces filed before the 1st April 2022, a Decree Absolute will be received upon finalisation of divorce. For divorces filed after 6th April 2022 a Final Order will be received upon finalisation of the divorce, these are the one and the same.

A Final Order would not ordinarily be applied for until financial matters have been resolved, so how soon you apply for a Final Order will depend upon how swiftly a financial agreement is reached. The earliest you can apply for a Final Order is a statutory period of six weeks and a day after the pronouncement of the Conditional Order. Once the application for a Final Order has been filed with the Court, it is usually pronounced within a couple of days.
