About this document
This pack contains all you need to manage your own undefended divorce by reason of abandonment during all three stages – the petition, the decree nisi and the decree absolute.
We provide the forms in two versions:
- Microsoft Word (can be used without Office in Windows 7, 8 and 10, and compatible with Mac Pages)
- Adobe PDF
The PDF versions are likely to be more suitable if you would like to complete the forms by hand, while the Word versions allow you to edit them on your computer.
Each form comes complete with guidance notes so that you can be confident in completing the form.
We review the forms regularly to make sure they are up-to-date. We last revised them after the Family Procedure Rules changed in August, 2014.
Are you exempt from paying court fees?
We include a court fee exemption calculator. 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 how fees for divorce are paid.
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.
