We herewith return.. D80b.. DJ has requstsd you amend the original petition and set out concise details of the respondents behaviour the petitioner finds intolerable to live with. All amendements should be in red pen and the petition resigned and redated. .. Take legal advice.
(D80b #2 attached, add/alter = no)(original petition was anodyne mushy 5 paras, family dotn get on, I want kids she doesn't, frequently row about money etc)
Sent d80b again deleting the 2 additional allegations. Changed 'do you wish to add anything' to no. (Ie what I should of done on the first d80b). Had I sent the second one first I assume it would of gone through.
Yes. No problems there. Just the nisi application and affidavit supporting the issuance of the conditional decree.
5 wooly anodyne pre agreed sentences as described above. She wouldn't of seen the extra 2 on the subsequent d80. The 5 she saw were families not getting on, rowing about money, desire for further kids , relihous differences and conscious uncoupling, etc. Judge didn't mind that and it went straight through. I havent asked her if she would agree to adultery, she probably would. She may agree to not telling me about her crim charges, I havnt raised it.
Correct. How to back out .
I did this and it came back from Barnet court last week - so alas this did not work! I have amended the petition in red ink as requested and written a cheque for the amendment fee (£95). I am under pressure to get the DN out, as my ex-wife is not happy to be back at the petition stage after 5 months. I would like you to check it thoroughly before it goes.
The amended petition can be downloaded from my dropbox :
The only other change is that I am to petition her at her solicitors as a service address as she won't give me her new address!
Dont mind paying £40 for you to review this thoroughly. Barnet court can be very fickle indeed. It is unfortunate that this problem was only picked up (presumably by a different judge) at the d80 stage!
The draft with the red pen has NOT been sent. I wish to get it validated before sending it. Any changes can easily be made. They generally take around 2 weeks to respond. x2b would not admit to adultery. I did explain that this would of been the easiest route however she refused. I can make any changes as necessary, my imperative being to get her re-petitioned as correctly as soon as possible.
Hmm I am not clear. So put in an entirely new petiton with simply 'amended petiton' on the front page in red pen. I have a soft copy of the original so not a problem. The court staff did say amend in red pen, I took this to mean score out the original 5 phrases in red. You seem to be saying that the only red ink that is required on the new one is on the front page, yes? 3 copies again ?
