My ex says he applied for a divorce about a month ago but I've had no papers through yet. How can I find out where he applied and when I'll get them? We don't communicate any more.

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How long have you lived apart and has he said which ground he used?

Apart 9 months and he said unreasonable behaviour

Hi
I am afraid that unless he tells you which court and when it was issued there is no way of knowing until you receive the paperwork from the Courts
Of course this assumes that he has in fact issued proceedings at all
Please ask if you need further details

How long would it normally take from completing the forms to the court sending the paperwork out? Is a month unusual?

Thanks

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Actually anything up to 8 weeks is not unusual!
