Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Does your daughter want a divorce?
How long was the reconciliation?
The reason there is a problem is that because they lived together for more than six months after the Decree Nisi - which means that he cannot now apply for a Decree Absolute based on this Petition
She should phone the Court and ask for copies of the relevant applications
She may also wish to arrange to discus smatters with her ex using Family mediation
I hope that this is of assistance -please ask if you need further details
1. Yes if the Decree Nisi had been rescinded then your daughter would have had to sign the paperwork
3. Exactly - another interesting issue!
4. She should - and to have been told about the hearing!
5. I rather think her husband applied for the Decree Absolute and the Court rejected it on the basis that they appeared to have lived together his solicitor should have told him the position - and clearly did not do so
You are being no such thing - it is your former son in law and his solicitor who are the problem in this situation
The legal position is clear (although it appears the solicitor is not aware of it)
Since your daughter and her husband resumed their cohabitation and remained together for more than six months the Divorce can no longer go ahead.
If you daughter attends court she woudl need to lie and say that she and her ex lived in the same house but as completely separate households if the divorce is to go ahead - which would make the second child rather hard to explain.
This is her ex's mess - it is his problem to deal with
You are most welcome - and you have clearly understood the position
