The Divorce Process

Step 7
Receive a court order

After the court hearing, the court office will finalise the court order. The office will send it to the applicant and respondent or their solicitors as soon as it is ready.

Other court orders relating to matters such as property or pensions may follow afterwards.

If you do not receive the court order within four weeks contact the court office. Sometimes documents such as a typed terms of agreement need to be given to the court office before the court order can be completed and sent.

You have the right to appeal if you are not happy with the decision of the judge. If you wish to appeal the decision, you must file your appeal documents within ten days of the court hearing.
