Vampires who don't actually do any work. There is an arbitration stage you have to attend and all agreements are typed up and attested there. Then you go to the judge and he confirms and signs it in front of you.

To get divorced here you literally only need an educated Arabic speaker who understands court procedure and what papers are required. My local hire wasn't even there on the day I did mine - only some underling who showed me which room to go to. Avoid local divorce at all costs if you can - simply on the principle of giving money to a Brit who might actually do some work over someone here who will do nothing.

I believe the UK route might be cheaper but longer. If you're not in a rush and it's no-contest that might be the best way.

Sorry to hear the news. It's tough even when it's amicable.

Yup it has to be done, but I can't help getting upset over all the amazing things we have done over the last 10 years. I'm sure we'll be good friends for a very long time but it's pretty sad.

I bought a kit online for £35 and then paid the court fees, £300 ish I think and job done. Dead easy.

Edit, I never went to court at all think the ex may of done to petition the divorce. Our reason was I left her and the country.

I believe that court fees are now over GBP 400. Neither of you needs to attend court.

I'm not sure what the situation is now, but back in the 1990's I did my own - cost about £60 at the time.

I got all of the forms from the Post Office I think, along with explanatory leaflets. Took about 3 months.

The easiest route is to state 'unreasonable behaviour' or 'irreconcilable differences' (not sure what it is called now). If you are both in amicable agreement that you want the divorce, plus what arrangements you will make regards your assets and income once divorced it is pretty straightforward.

You will have to cite examples of this in your application. I presume you don't have children as you don't mention them. This makes it easier too from an application point of view.

I would imagine you can do this online yourself these days, or print off, fill in and send back to UK.

Aye that's it. She divorces me, we'll fill it all in together - she puts 4 or 5 things down as 'unreasonable behaviour', ie me getting pissed, smashing up a police van and going to prison should do it - then in 3 months it should be done and dusted. Everything done electronically and no court appearances.

To be honest, that's how it bloody should be if it ends like ours has, it's only documents and court at the end of the day, thousands of pounds indeed.

I've been married to a beautiful woman for 30+ years, and in that time I've seen numerous friends divorce and they all had one thing in common. They didn't take care of their wives, they didn't give them enough attention, they didn't take them out enough, they didn't stand up when their wives approached the table and they didn't open doors for her. They didn't listen when she talked and they didn't make her #1 on their speed dial.

A divorce is always the mans fault, always. If you meet 4 out of 5, or even 3 out of 5 of a womans basic needs, she won't want to ever leave you.

Next time do it right, and don't marry someone you don't adore
I know you are that stupid yank stalker prick but this post has given me a right good laugh.

Anyhow I am sure your banning is just around the corner.

I feel sick at the thought of agreeing with you. But I do.

And who says that Spugsy's wife was "stepping out or whatever"? From my experience, it's usually the hubby who has been stepping out. No idea where you got your information from.
