Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you
has your ex claimed costs?
How was your name spelt on the marriage certificate?
Look at Part 10 (2) - are any boxes ticked?
Right so no claim for costs
The answer to 1C is yes - assuming that one of you is resident here in the Uk
Question 5 - the answer is "I do not admit to the alleged behaviour but I will not be defending the Petition"
Send it to the court with a letter pointing out the mistake in your name
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
That is something that has to be agreed between you - using Family mediation if necessary
Once the terms are agreed you can get a local solicitor to draft it
You can write to her solicitor and ask if she will agree to one - if she refuses to start with you can approach a FamilY mediator and attend a Mediation information
and Assessment Meeting, and if that doe snot succeed you can make an applictaion to the Court for the Judge to decide the matter
The Financial Settlement is not linked to the Divorce itself and there is no need to delay sending in the Acknowledgement of Service
Question 1C is NOT related to the allegations at all - it is about whether the UK is the right country for the proceedings to be issued in.
In view of the language problem I suggest that you contact a Family Mediator to try and deal with the financial matters
That question is NOT about the allegations - it is about whether or not the Court is the right court for a divorce to take place in - which it is
You are dealing with your position on the actual allegations in question 5 where you are going to say
I do not admit to the alleged behaviour but I will not be defending the Petition"
Simply write a letter to the court and point the mistake out
It is up to your ex to take the next step - you should phone the court and ask if the Decree Nisi has yet been applied for
It is still too early to take action - you will need to wait for at least three months before the court will agree that your ex is dragging her feet
Remind me - have the financial issues been resolved?
Your ex could have applied for the Decree Nisi six weeks and on day after 4th Feb - so on 17th March.
You can apply for it three months after that
Since that time is up you can apply on a D11 and pay the fee of £155
A hearing date will be set.
Your ex may claim that there should be a delay until the finances are resolved - but at least there will be some movement
Please ask if you need further details
You can deal with the form yourself and you do not need to contact your ex before you do it.
If she does attend the court hearing and ask for a delay then you will need to negotiate the financial settlement before applying again
It is up to you whether you contact her or not
If she attends the hearing and asks for a delay then the matter will be adjourned for say three months to give her a chance to apply for the financial issues to be dealt with. If she does not do that then the Decree Absolute will be granted then.
You complete this form
You are asking for
"1. The Decree Nisi granted to the Petitioner on xxxx to be made absolute"
You send that plus two copies and the fee of £155 to the court
I would suggest that you write back and say that you will indeed sign a letter id they prepare it - and at the same time you would like there to be a Clean Break Consent Order dealing with all the finances
They prepare an Order - you approve and sign it.
Both parties complete a form D81 - and the Forms and the Order are sent to the court for sealing
