I’ve received my decree nisi certificate – how long will it take for my decree absolute to come through?

Hi DWG, you can apply for your Decree Absolute six weeks and one day after your Decree Nisi pronouncement date. Make sure you don’t send any sooner than this as it could be rejected by the court. Once the court has received your Decree Absolute application, it usually takes around two to three weeks for your Decree Absolute certificate to arrive.
