Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Did he confirm his consent in writing before you issued the Petition?
Given that you have nothing in writing confirming his consent there is no point in instructing the bailiff - you need to prove his consent and arranging for personal service will
not do this.
What you need to do is inform your ex that if he does not return the Acknowledgement of Service and Consent to the divorce then you will amend the Petition to one based on his Unreasonable Behaviour and that you will claim costs.
If after three weeks he has still not signed it then you will have to apply to the court for permission to amend the Petition.
You will have to cross out the Two year consent grounds and add in the Unreasonable Behaviour grounds and underline all the new change sin red - including the new date and signature and pay a £95 fee.
It is worth arranging for Personal service of this as with this ground all you have to do is prove that the other party has seen it
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
Yes there is no problem with the delay
