What is your exact query please?
Amicable divorce is always better, specially when parties can agree to who wants what.
Of course, you can. It has nothing to do with your divorce of financial settlement. You can have a clean break consent order approved by the court and then get divorced.
This does not mean you were not abused and cannot seek justice.
Yes, I am here dear. This is an email service, sometimes takes long to get the response.
Your ground is 2 years separation, not unreasonable behaviour. You wanted to get this divorce as soon as possible.
If domestic violence was the cause for the divorce as divorce ground, your ex would never had agreed. So, to process the divorce smoothly you have chosen another ground which would let you divorce him quickly. If you would have chose domestic violence as the ground, he would have prolonged the procedure for no reason and would have made it difficult for you. Hence, you have chosen another ground for which you qualify.
You have asked them to hold which is fine. You have not withdrawn it. If they question you, you just explain to them that you did not want to go through another abuse in the process asking for divorce on domestic violence ground.
Nothing to fear. He will be punished. Even if something goes wrong, at least you will be happy that you have no ties with that person anymore.
You should explain to the police nicely your reason for holding it.
