I need to respond to a draft divorce petition before 27th of this month I am not contesting but do not agree to the liabilty of payng costs can you tell me an appropriate response before the petition is filed to the court
this is how i responded initially
I am responding to you letter dated 6th May 20014 ref: CSX01/CXS01/212701.
I will require more time to respond in detail to the Draft Divorce Petition, as I am a lay person and not familiar with the correct procedures to follow in these matters.
I am currently seeking to instruct a solicitor to facilitate a response and will require a further 10 days from the 13th of may 2014 to enable me to find financial resources to pay for legal representation.
Please can you acknowledge the receipt of this email as proof of a response in this matter.
I believe they are waiting until the 27th of may to file the petition.
I am unsure how to respond correctly, I do not intend to contest the divorce 9 for unreasonable behaviour) but believe that I should not be liable for costs, and am concerned that the prayer part is asking for maintenance etc , is it wise to state that i do not agree with costs and paying maintenance etc in my response to this.
Please advise if possible.
