      Hi there, it must feel strange but it’s just a piece of paper at the end of the day. I was told not to divorce till finances are sorted as it affects assets and pension rights etc.

      Finances can be sorted after nisi granted. Just make sure you or ypur solicitor don’t apply for absolute till you’ve done that. If he’s divorcing you you can still ask court to hold absolute till after finances done.
      Decree nisi felt odd. Absolute was even more odd – I didn’t feel anything at all.
      It’s a step closer to freedom! xxxx

      You can get divorced and do the finances anytime later. Just make sure you sort them out so that he cannot pester you later.

      Hi x

      I had my decree absolute through last (detail removed by Moderator).

      I felt numb, like you the financial side is still not sorted (detail removed by Moderator).

      It is not unusual for the divorce to be through before the money is sorted I was informed. Only issue is that if they die before the pension split is completed we get nothing.

      O well no having bad thoughts for a while.

      The nisi part shows intent to divorce, but you can go no further and still be married.

      Then who ever apply for the divorce after six weeks and a day can apply for the absolute meaning you single.

      If it’s you that has applied it may be worth talking it over with your solicitor till when it is best to proceed. If it’s him you have no choice in the matter.

      You still have a choice. If he applied you just have to wait longer, about 3 months and then you can finalize the divorce if he does not do it. Then he gets divorced quicker than he planned to, oooh.
      This is important if he does not have much and wants your money.
