Does it matter which of us issues the divorce proceedings?

It generally doesn’t matter who starts the divorce process, and you’re able to make a joint application if that is what you would prefer.

If one of you makes the application the other is notified and has to respond to the application. You will still need to start making arrangements for your children and finances, but the fact that a single or joint application should not make a difference to the court decision, providing what you are proposing is fair and the children’s needs are met.
