Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thanks for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-When is thr criminal trial due to take place?
-Are you married?
-How old is your daughter?
-What are the terms of his bail?
-Is the home owner or rented, and in whose name?
Thank you. Firstly, if you remain at risk once the criminal trial ends, then you can apply for a non-molestation order to protect you - the terms can be the same as the bail conditions. You can pursue this at your local family court under form FL401 and there is no court fee.
In relation to the finances, as you have a divorce petition issued you can pursue an application for financial relief arising out of the marriage. This will take into account the matrimonial finances and what sort of settlement is appropriate. This can be done under Form A and a £255 court fee. Given that there are criminal proceedings and bail conditions you are exempt from the requirement for mediation.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you

Just to clarify - I am afraid that there is no basis on which you can appeal about the decision made by the CPS
Accordingly your only option is an injunction.
With regard to the divorce is you have used the Unreasonable Behaviour ground then you need to arrange for the Petition to be personally served on your ex - then you
can simply go ahead with the divorce.
With regard to the transfer of the property and the money if you can prove that he has done this then the court can make an award on the basis that these assets are still available to him
My apologies - I should have been more specific
It is highly unlikely that an appeal to review will be successful and you would be better placed obtaining the Injunction and processing the divorce
The actual process of asking for a review is set out here
But an injunction is the easier option
