Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Are you asking how to start divorce proceedings?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
To divorce you either need to complete the online form or the paper form D8. I will provide a link below for you to access both forms = the cost either way is £550 unless you are on a low income or benefits, in which case you may be eligible for fee remission.
You will need to have been married for at least a year, and meet one of the criteria to support the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, that is: separated for two years with consent, adultery, desertion, unreasonable behaviour or separated for five years with no consent needed.
You can find the forms and further details here: www.gov.uk/divorce
