Thank you for looking into my query.
In section 3 I checked the box "Other" and stated "The Petitioner a d Respondent were last habitually resident in England and Wales and the Petitioner is still domiciled in Engalnd and Wales.".
I was born in England but grew up in Africa. I returned to England in January 1999 with my wife and children and have remained here since that date.
I appreciate the response but I'm not sure if the court have actually suggested that I start the process again - may I refer you back to the response that I received from the quote:
"1. The ground set out in Part 3 of the Divorce does not give the court jurisdiction. It would be sufficient if the Petitioner had stated he is still habitually resident in England and Wales. The Petitioner shall file further evidence (verified by a statement of Truth- see FPR PD17A) on the points raised above and renew request for directions."
If I understand your advice correctly you are suggesting that I ignore the court and restart by resubmitting another D80? This will mean that I need to cancel the current petition and start again which means I will have to pay again?
