Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Has 6 Weeks To Reconcile With His Wife

To get a divorce , both parties must have a marriage that is legally recognised in the  UK and have a permanent home in England or Wales.

According to reports, there are indications that there may be a chance for reconciliation between the founder of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome and his estranged wife, Anita.

City People magazine reports that to have a divorce , both parties must have a marriage that is legally recognised in the  UK and have a permanent home in England or Wales.

Getting a decree nissi, there are 5 grounds: adultery; unreasonable behaviour; desertion; 2 years’ separation; and 5 years’ separation. In the case of Rev. Chris, adultery wasn’t cited but the decree nissi was reportedly served to him during a recent visit to the UK.

And the Family Law in the United Kingdom states that a decree nissi is a document that says the court sees no reason why you can’t divorce. The decree nissi is usually applied  for if the applicant’s spouse does not defend the divorce petition.

The applicant can only get a ‘decree absolute’ to end the marriage after 6 weeks of obtaining a decree nissi.

The decree absolute is the legal document that ends a marriage, and the applicant needs to wait at least 6 weeks after the date of the decree nissi before applying for a decree absolute. This delay gives a chance to discuss finances and other issues between the couple before the marriage comes to an end.
