Can the 20-week waiting period in divorce be reduced?

A Judge can reduce the period in exceptional circumstances such as where one of the couple is terminally ill and there is a concern that the divorce may not be concluded prior to that person’s death. In the first reported case of its type, a Conditional Order was made 10 weeks after the divorce application was issued as the applicant had terminal health issues.
