Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
Can you confirm whether the Belfast court has rejected the petition on the basis of the jurisdictional point, or if this is yet undecided?
You will have grounds to make a complaint about the solicitor, but that is a separate issue to moving the divorce forwards, and it won't be dealt with by the court in NI. See here for how to start the complaint: https://www.lawsociety.ie/Public/Complaints-against-solicitors/
You do then need to arrange for service of the divorce papers via a process server, so you can evidence that she has been served.
I hope this clarifies the point - that they are separate issues.
If so, please take a second to rate my response with 5 stars as this will credit me for my time.
Thanks and do let me know if you have further questions, follow ups are part of the service, even if you have already taken the time to rate for me.
