The Decree Nisi is the final part of the divorce process which officially terminates a marriage. In legal terms, a couple are still married until the Decree Nisi has gone through and becomes a Decree Absolute. This has now been replaced by a single final divorce order in modern divorce proceedings.

The Decree Absolute is the legal end of a marriage that allows the two individuals to legally remarry. It usually follows the Decree Nisi, which is issued six weeks beforehand, but in modern divorce proceedings this has been replaced by a final divorce order.

If you are an EU national, you need a Certified Translation of your Decree Absolute, to register your Divorce at your Consulate.

At Baraka Certified Translations, the price for your Decree Absolute Certified Translation is £40.
