Not sure what you mean by "normal" but it is quite possible for one partner to file for divorce, it is not necessary for both partners to agree and file for divorce jointly.

If you have dependent children under 16, and/or only one person applies, then the divorce is provisional for six months or so.

After that time, you apply for the divorce to be finalised. If you don't then the case is dropped.

Hope this helps

When there are children under 16 you normally have a 6 month period after the initial 6 months cooling-off in where you can finalise the divorce. It takes only 1 partner to finalise it, and it can be simply done via letter, email ...as there is no official form. The court just wants to know if you want it done. It is after 12 months from the initial application being received that the case is dropped if not finalised.

okay, but just to make it clear. does this mean only one person is needed to get a divorce granted?
let put it like this, my friend want to divorce her husband, but she fills and signs the divorce paper; but she can not submit it until her husband did not fill and sign it too.
or is it possible for her to still submit it, and even get a reply without the husband being involved?
