As it’s their application, he needs to write to the solicitors and tell them of the error and invite them to advise the court accordingly. Tell them that he has written to the court in the same terms.
He needs to also write to the court saying the same and telling them that he has written to the solicitor in the same terms.
The court will not get involved in marriage and finances unless divorce or legal separation proceedings have started.
As part of the divorce process, it is always a good idea to apply for a financial order:
Which draws a line under the finances of the marriage and prevents either of the ex-spouses coming back to the other, in some years time, asking for more money if circumstances have changed (the lottery?).
Strictly speaking, one of the parties should do that before they get the Decree Absolute otherwise there going to have to explain why the delay.
That would deal with the house and any other assets.
If they can’t agree what is happening then it would be decided by the court.
Similarly, they can’t agree what’s happening with the child, they are going to need a chart arrangement order
Here is the link to the Government webpage on Child Arrangement Orders.
There are lots of different Child arrangement orders.
They can include:
A Contact Order which specifies when parent sees a child,
Residence Order to determine who your child lives with,
Prohibited Steps Order to prevent a parent doing something with the child such as moving away
Specific Issue Order to allow a parent to do something specific with the child such as moving away.
Please note that before rushing off to court you have to have tried mediation first, even if it fails
