About this document
This pack contains every form you need to manage the three stages of your divorce – the petition, the decree nisi and the decree absolute. The process is described further in this article.
We provide these in two versions. Which you choose to use depends on whether you prefer to print them and complete them by hand, or whether you prefer to use your word processor.
The formats we provide are:
- a Microsoft Word document (compatible with most newer versions of Windows and OSX)
- an Adobe PDF format
Each blank form comes complete with guidance notes and a completed example so that you can be confident you have filled it in correctly.
We review these forms regularly to make sure they are up-to-date. They last changed in 2014 when amendments to the Family Procedure Rules were made.
Are you exempt from paying court fees?
If you are on a low income, you may either be completely exempt from paying fees or have to pay a contribution to the fee rather than the full amount. You can read more about who pays the costs of a divorce.
We include a court fee exemption calculator.
If you qualify for a fee exemption you should also complete form EX160 (included with this document) and send it along with the relevant supporting evidence to the court.
