Resolved Question:

i have been trying most of this year to get a divorce. I have been separated from the other half for 7 years. Milton Keynes court was dealing with it then it changed to Bury St Edmonds. they all have sent the forms back 7 times so far, but I do believe I have done it now . my question to you is , the form ex160 is to exempt me from paying the £410 ,reading the notes for ex160 form it states that if you are getting certain benefits you are exempt . well I get pension credit which should make me exempt . Could you confirm this so I then can send the whole package back to Bury St Edmonds which will cost around £8
