Subject: [SOG-UK] A Royal Navy Divorce
Divorces were within the jurisdiction of the Probate, Divorce and
Admiralty Division of the High Court of Justice from the time of that
court's establishment in 1875 until the division was renamed the Family
Division in 1971 (and this division still deals with them). In more
recent years, county courts have handled undefended cases. If the file
of a case has been destroyed, or is not publicly available, it is the
decree absolute, rather than the decree nisi, that can be inspected.
However a search costs 65 pounds for a ten-year period, but this fee
includes the supply of a copy. If the registry in which the case
proceeded and the case number are known, a copy can be obtained for a
mere ten pounds.
