I can forward a scanned copy of the letter from the Court. Mal's husband goes by the name of Uzo. If you look at their full names on the letter, you can see why they use Mal and Uzo.
How do I forward the letter?
She didn't enter anything in that box, having ticked the Yes box above it, to say that everything stated in the statement of arrangements is true
Aha. She ticked the box to say "I identify the signature" and wrote "UZO (short name) of the the Respondent" in the large box alongside that. She also ticked the box under there that says it is the signature of her husband.
I can't see what else she should have done and it seems to come down to the judge saying he doesn't read the signature as UZO, even though she has identified it as such.
Are you available on the phone Clare, so I can run through this with you. I'm looking at the form right now and there is a box alongside the tick box, which says she identifies the signature. This is inside the tramlines and is to be completed if you are attaching an acknowledgement of service, etc.
I'm seeing Mal on Friday,so will tell her what you've said. I must say that the words from the judge seem much more to do with him/her not reading the signature of Mal's husband as UZO, rather than not liking the crossings out, but let's see what happens when she resubmits a clean application
My friend managed to find another document with her husband's signature on (an old driving licence, I think).She took this to the court and they're now saying everything's OK and the application for the decree nisi will proceed. Thanks for your time on this anyway
