Hi, thank you for your question. A divorce application can only be withdrawn if you both agree to it and inform the court. It would therefore remain live with the court if this has not happened. In the circumstances I would suggest that you contact the relevant court and quote your case number ***** they will inform you what stage it has reached. If she has acknowledged receipt then you can apply for Decree Nisi. If she has not, then you can make an application for deemed service and explain in your statement what facts you have to show the court that she has received the petition (for example dates and times of discussions you had with her and text messages specifically about the petition). The fee for a deemed service application is £50.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
