There. I am currently involved in a rather bitter divorce

Resolved Question:

Hi there.
I am currently involved in a rather bitter divorce and my, shortly to be ex wife, is consistently writing statements to my solicitor containing rather damaging lies bout my conduct. Many of these lies I can provide written evidence of the inaccuracies and false allogations but I wondered where I stand, legaly, in fighting these claims.
At least I want to get her to stop lying.
Look forward to recieving any guidance.
Thank you in advance.
Barry

Thanks. I would suggest that you do not finalise the divorce until you have a court order or court approved financial settlement - as certain financial rights end when you divorce - so it may be best to agree not to apply for decree absolute until the finances are settled.In relation to the allegations she is raising, she has pursued the divorce under unreasonable behaviour and they will not require anything further from her. The finances will not be impacted by such allegations and the court will only consider financial misconduct if such is alleged.As long as she is not using the allegations to impact your arrangements to see the children, then I would suggest that you take some advice from your solicitor and ignore the allegations if they are not being used to impact arrangements.If you found my information provided helpful please could you rate my response positively as I will not be credited for my response without a positive rating.
