Hi thank you for your message, please note that I will look to provide an accurate but nevertheless speedy reply to your inquiry. I am sorry to hear about your situation but I will endeavour to help you today.
Why do you want to withdraw the D63? you can deal with the finances after divorce and the financial separation is a separate procedure from the divorce.
Yes I understand, as the court has advised though there is a fee to withdraw I think it is £90, it is also unnecessary given you can just go ahead with the D36 and still deal with the pension later. The decree absolute being granted has no affect on the finances expect to say that you will no longer be accruing rights over his/her assets after the decree absolute is granted and vice versa but rights already accrued up to that point remain valid.
I trust this assists you in understanding your position however, should you have any supplementary inquiries, do not hesitate to ask and I will look to clarify or expand on my previous response.
But if one of you was to die within 28 days of the order you cannot get the decree absolute anyway because you cannot divorce someone when they dead so in that very unlikely scenario it would not help to wait to put in the D36. I trust this assists
