Thank you for your help previously. I have another question that I hope you could help with.
I have just received my Decree Absolute sent to me by my solicitor. It includes 2 Notes. Note1 is about Divorce affecting inheritance under a will.
Note 2 is as below and it is urgent that I understand this:
2. Divorce affects the appointment of a guardian.
"unless a contrary intention is shown in the instrument of appointment, any appointment under section 5(3) or section 5(4)of Children Act 1989 by one spouse of his or her former spouse as guardian, by virtue of section 6 of that Act, deemed to have been revoked at the date of the dissolution of the marriage."
please what does this mean? I have no idea of what the sections in children Act or their implications or what I must do now.
My son lives with me. He is 16 years of age and in full time education which will continue into further education.
1) Please break this down for me and advise.
2) Also should my solicitor have included a note of explanation for me on the 2 notes in the Decree?
His cover letter just confirmed the attachment of the Decree and that it was in my favour by cross-petition presented by me.
I'd eagerly await your reply.
