Form D36: Notice of application for decree nisi to be made absolute

If you have petitioned (or have received a petition) for a divorce and the court has pronounced the 'decree nisi', you can use this document to apply for the 'decree absolute' which will legally end the marriage. If you are the petitioner, you must wait at least 6 weeks before sending this document to the court. If you are the respondent, and the petitioner has not already applied, you must wait at least 3 months and 6 weeks before sending this document to the court. Once the decree absolute has been granted, you and your ex-spouse will be able to marry or enter into a civil partnership. Note that a judicial separation does not require you to apply for a decree absolute. Please note that this is only suitable for use in England & Wales.
