How do I change a divorce petition from unreasonable behaviour

Resolved Question:

How do I change a divorce petition from unreasonable behaviour to adultery? I completed a D11 application to vary an existing order and the judge has advised that he is unclear what I am seeking to amend and if I am seeking to amend the petition I need to apply to do so. I am unclear as what he now requires so would appreciate some legal advice.

Excellent newsThe starting point is to get him to send you a letter confirming that he will agree to a divorce based on his Adultery.Once you have that then you need to amend your divorce petition.Take a copy of it Cross out the part of Part 5 that refers to Unreasonable Behaviour and put a Red Cross in the Adultery box.Cross out everything you have put in Box 6 out the new details in and underline the changes in RedResign and re date and underline those in red as wellThen complete a new D11 asking for Permission to amend the Petition as set out in the D8 attachedI hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
