oh dear! I didn't realise it was PLUS consent! Is there any other way I can proceed? She did leave the family house without agreement 3 years ago while I lived there for another 2 years. There was strong suspicion of adultery too but she denies it and would be imposible to prove.
We have a maintenance and access order in place from Ireland already so that wouldn't have to be touched in the UK.
She is applying for free legal aid in Ireland and I fear when she gets it she will fight over the slightest little thing as she knows it'll cost me. So I wanted to file from here to prevent that really.
Have I any other options open to me?
Ok thanks Claire, that sounds like an option. How difficult is it to prove her unreasonable behaviour as a male? I have voice recordings of her being extremely abusive to me. Can she defend it from afar via letters etc or does she have to come over to the Uk court to defend it? Can she delay it?
