I’ve received a divorce application by email. What should I do?
Being served with divorce papers can be overwhelming and upsetting.
This is what you will receive and what you should do.
The divorce centre will send you the following documents:
Your spouse’s application for divorce – this document will contain basic factual information about your relationship, and a statement that they consider the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

A notice of proceedings- This will contain the case number and an access code.

An Acknowledgement of service form – This is the document that the person receiving the divorce papers, the respondent, needs to complete to inform the court that they have received the papers. As the respondent, you should complete the acknowledgement of service form within 14 days of receipt, by answering all the questions and returning it to the court.
