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?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
His Statement :The petioner met the respondent online on a Muslim Marriage Website. After just one meeting they decided to marry as the petioner assumed that the respondent wanted the same as him in life . The petitioner had a set criteria of what from a spouse and he informed the respondent of this and the respondent agreed. They married on 11 sep 2015 and the petitioner returned to the Uk on 12 sep 2015. The marriage at the time was not consummated. Once the respondent arrived in the Uk she changed her mind and informed the petitioner that she did not fit his criteria and she wanted to live a different life to the one he wanted . The petitioner accused the respondent of duping him only to gain entry into the UK . The Petitioner believes that the respondent deliberately lied to him and that he made a mistake unwittingly in marrying her. The marriage remains unconsummated. The petitioner wishes to have the marriage anulled and molve on with his life
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

Do you agree that the marriage was not consummated?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

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.

this is what i received from my husband's solicitor
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
dear did you check my second last mail i already send you , if you have contact number please give me i want to discuss on call
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

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.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
but that case is sexual assault , my husband was foot fetish person and he also he want me to do master behavior with him , like he want to become my slave , the Guy was not normal he never satisfy from normal sex because he always want me to release him from my feet .. so its consummated from himself
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

So why are you noy agreeing for the marriage to ve annulled if he has displayed this behaviour?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i want to defend his statement , i want annulment but not on his statement he should agree what he have done with me
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
whats the meaning of notice which my husband's solicitor send it to me ?
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
its not incorrect , that statement is correct which we replied , second can you speak in urdu because i don't understand the first line meaning ..
second is that mean my husband's solicitor received the reply of my annulment ?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
come on plz reply quickly other wise tell me or recommend another solicitor i need to go office tomorrow plz reply
Expert:  Harris replied 10 months ago.

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.
