Metro Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Has Six Weeks to Reconcile With His Wife


Social Member
DailyPost says pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife Rev. Anita may well be on their way to a reconciliation.

Apparently to have a divorce in the UK, there's quite the procedure that must be followed:

There are five grounds for getting a decree nissi, which are: " adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, 2 years’ separation and 5 years’ separation."

We read that adultery wasn't served to pastor Chris, but the decree nissi was still served to him on his recent visit to the UK.

In UK family law, the decree nissi is a document showing that the court sees no reason why a couple shouldn't be divorced. It becomes effective if neither spouse defends the divorce petition.

DailyPost writes:
After 6 weeks, the applicant can apply for a ‘decree absolute’ to end the marriage.

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 nisi 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.

The decree nissi, with suit number FD14D01650, was filed on 9th April 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn in London by Anita’s lawyers, Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors.
