Paperwork says its Court notification that my application for leave to rely on the answer to the petition filed by my husband has been listed for hearing on the 14/7
is the hearing for the court to decide whether to allow me to rely on my answer to his petition as it was late and to decide whether to allow him to answer my cross petition as his answer was late too.?
I do not want cross petition and the witness statement must be seen by the judge before he makes his decision. How do I go through this please. what point do i now let the judge have the statements?
I do not know.The paperwork does not say
The witness statements are to verify who has behaved unreasonably in the marriage leading to the breakdown of it. Is how he has treated me throughout the marriange sufficient grounds?
Sorry I have not been able to cope. The hearing was to decide who will divorce who. Unfortunately the situation has moved to trial. The district judge will deal with case management issues at the next hearing after 1st September when he would have submitted his witness statements and who would be witnesses too.
I have been asked to prepare my own withness statement too. I do I do this? Someone told me I have to write about myself such that who has never met me would feel they know me + incidents of unreasonable behaviour that led to the breakdown of the marriage. Is this true?
Please can you tell me what it's meant by case management for this trial? What can I expect and how will it be carried out?
what can my live witnesses expect?
2 of my witnesses live abroad and they have the strongest evidence as they were involved with the incidents. Can they testify via skype or telephone link?
I wait to hear from you please, urgently.
