Hi How Can I help?
I will read your question and respond shortly-thank you
Have you tried mediation?
If you husband files for the divorce he can also use the ground for Adultery especially if his new partner admits that they are in a relationship/are together.
Once you receive the divorce petition from the sealed divorce petition - you will need to reply and respond whether you wish to contest it.
I have suggested meditation as you wish to contest the marriage and if you believe there is still hope given that it is a long marriage.
Depending on the answer/reasons you provide to contest the divorce the court may list a date for a hearing for both parties to attend and try and resolve the issue. If you response is deemed basis (emotional) and holds no real substance then the court may just dismiss your response completely.
Yes he can use Adultery!. You just wanting him back when he wants to move on and his partner provides a statement confirming they are in a sexual relationship - it would be difficult for you to contest if he wishes to move on. I understand what you are saying but you cannot stop him applying on this ground!
The law states that he can use Adultery. You can contest it - it can be expensive and drag it on longer. However, the court would consider his evidence, his partner etc.
Sorry are you still there?
I understand this - hence the reason you should try mediation and speak to your husband that if he does apply for divorce you will contest it.
his own statement, partner's evidence in support of his ground to seek divorce.
This is a completely separate issue
