Default Replacement Decree Absolute Cost?

Hey guys,

I need to send my Mums Decree Absolute off to Student Finance to prove my Mum is a single parent, but the offices are closed untill Monday.

In order to meet the deadline, I could really do with posting it tomorrow but I dont know how much it costs for the replacement

Does anybody know how much a replacement costs, perhaps you have recently applied for a replacement Decree Absolute too?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Hiya, What you need to do is:

Get your mom to apply to the court where the divorce went through. She'll need to submit a letter quoting the case number (if you have it) along with a fee of 5 and a SAE. Alternatively, if she doesn't know the case number, she would need to put as much information in the covering letter as she can ie) approx date/year of divorce, full names of husband and wife etc and the fee goes up to 40, again supply a SAE so the court can send it back to you.

Or she can always go in to the court that processed the divorce and ask to sit and wait for a copy of the decree absolute if she explains its urgent - obviously she'll still need to pay either 5 or 40. Cheque/payable orders made out to "HMCS".

The decree absolute will have a red court seal on it. Hope that helps. Legacy xx
