does she want to get divorced?
I see. If she does not want to divorce she can oppose the divorce, although the court would frequently allow a divorce. Has he grounds?
Then she can defend the petition if she wishes to do so.
The fact is that the respondent to any divorce proceedings has the right to defend. However, if they do so then the procedure will become a lot more complicated, and therefore the costs will increase hugely (if they fail to stop the divorce going through they are also likely to be ordered to pay the petitioner’s costs). Defending divorce proceedings is therefore not a decision that should be ta***** *****ghtly.
She can set out the abuse but that might support the prospect of divorce. I hope this helps and please rate positive.
In her witness statement to the court if she fights the petition. I hope that this helps and please rate.
