You’ll also need to be a permanent resident in England or Wales (if you’re not you’ll have to seek guidance using the government’s D8 notes).
There are three steps to getting your divorce approved by a court: While the conditions for filing also apply in Scotland, the system works somewhat differently to the one used in England and Wales and places different emphasis on property owned before the marriage.
District Judge Robert Duddridge granted a divorce decree in a hearing at the Central Family Court in London on Friday.
Neither party was at the hearing, which lasted less than a minute. A marriage does not formally end until a decree absolute has been granted.
The pair separated previously, in 2013, after Mr Hollywood admitted having an affair with Marcela Valladolid, his co-star on the US version of Bake Off.
Alexandra took the baker back into her life but their marriage was finally over four years later.
How to get a decree nisi: If your application is rejected, you’ll be sent a ‘notice of refusal of judge’s certificate’ explaining the reasons, and you may need to go to a court hearing or need to supply further information.
‘Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son, and we would ask the press and public to allow us privacy as a family during this very difficult time.’ The exes had been working for months on a divorce settlement after Alex was advised that she is entitled to half of the TV chef’s £10 million fortune – including the £2.4 million Kent property they once shared but which Alex now lives in with their son.
A decree nisi is essentially a document that says the court sees no reason you can’t get divorced.
If, however, your spouse disputes the divorce, you’ll need to attend a court hearing to discuss the case before being having a decree nisi granted.
A divorce petitioner has to wait six weeks and a day after the decree nisi is granted to apply for a decree absolute – the final dissolution of the marriage.
Neither Great British Bake Off judge Paul, 53, nor Alex was present at the hearing.
