Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm:
-If you are in England or Wales?
-The circumstances of your matter and why you seek an annulment
-How long you have been married
hey my case is regarding annulment , my husband said that i marry with him because i want to come in uk i just come here in march 2016 and now in May 2016 he send me annulment i hired a solicitor but my husband give him money or i don't know what happen he still did not send my petition answer now tell me what to do ?
Thank you for your above response - there is no need to create a new question and we can continue on this thread.
-Under what ground has he applied for an annulment?
Do you agree that the marriage was not consummated?
In that case it is likely a judge will agree that an annulment should be granted. In those circumstances, if an annulment is granted this will impact your spouse visa (if you have one) but the home office will assess your situation and they may allow you to remain in the UK.

Thank you. It is clear that he has applied for an annulment and you intend to defend it due to some unagreed issues in his statement. However, the main issue he will need to prove is that the marriage has not bee consummated, and you agree to this. Therefore your defence of the annulment petition should not proceed as it will fail given you agree it is not consummated.
The other allegations he has made, and which you have responded to, will not fully impact the annulment application and it may therefore be best to no longer defend it. The judge will want to see if the marriage was consummated and because you agree it has not been, the annulment is very likely to be granted by the court.
So why are you noy agreeing for the marriage to ve annulled if he has displayed this behaviour?
Their letter appears to attempt to agree an amended statement of case. Your solicitors should have advised you not to defend iy if you agree to an annulment, rather just put in a statement regarding the incorrect allegations. The annulment will likely be granted but would have taken a lot of time, stress and money from both of you due to thr defence
Apologies for the delay, unfortunately I do not know whether he has received your reply and you need to check this with your solicitors. But again, despite your reply there appears to have been no need to file a defence as the general fact of non-consummation will allow the court to approve an annulment.
