Thanks for your question. I would defend the divorce petition. Assuming your Minute of Agreement was in full and final settlement of all issues between you, that should be it, and it should be produced as part of the divorce as evidence refuting his claim. I hope that helps. Happy to discuss further. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.

I suspect that what you are referring to is the Tick box part of the Petition relating to finances.
In fact this does NOT mean that he is actually making any claims - it merely makes it easier to dismiss any claims that you have on each other in a Clean Break Order ( the English equivalent of a Minute of Agreement)
You should on no account defend the divorce based on this issue - far from it - it is for your benefit

You still do not need to defend the divorce - it is in fact entirely separate from the financial settlement.
What you do is send a copy of the minute of agreement to his solicitors
