What happens if you don't apply for a Final Order in divorce?

The Order that ends a marriage will only be issued if one party applies for it. A Court does not automatically issue a Final Order.

An Applicant has up to 12 months after receiving the Conditional Order to apply for the Final Order. If they apply after 12 months, the Court will need an explanation for the delay. If the applicant does not apply for the Final Order, the other spouse can apply for it 3 months after the applicant was first able to apply.
