Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
If you are quite sure that there is nothing in the Initial Writ that you wish to contest, and that all financial and any child issues have already been resolved, then you don’t need to do anything at all and don’t need to send the form back. An F26 is a notice of intention to defend the action and in a family action also used if you wish to make any claim in the action yourself or seek any order. If that doesn’t apply to you, you can ignore the form and the divorce will go through undefended.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
