Good evening to you, I'm Lea and I am going to assist you today.
Getting a divorce is relatively straightforward if you meet the criteria. You can petition on form D8, or online - I will link to both below. The cost whether you apply on paper or online is £550, unless you are on a low income/benefits in which case you may be entitled to fee remission and should complete form EX160.

Online application: https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-divorce
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
Children matters can be agreed between you, with the help of mediators, and if no joy with either of those options, either one of you can apply to court for a child arrangements order on form C100 - cost £215.
Finances, again you can agree things between you or with the help of a mediator, and failing that can make an application to the court to decide, once the decree nisi has been granted. It is always best to get the finances resolved before the decree absolute is pronounced. Finance applications are made on form A.
You're very welcome.
Have a nice evening.
