Hi, thanks for your question.
You will need to wait 6 weeks and 1 day fr the date of decree nisi before submitting the D36 application if you are the petitioner.
Of the petition was filed before 1 July 2013 there is a £50 court fee. If filed after this date there is no court fee.
Please let me know if you have any further questions about this.

No, you will not have to attend court and the judge will deal with the application based on the papers.
