Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
My simplified divorce form has just been rejected by the court for the only reason that my spouse has bipolar.
I would like to do this myself, as I already have the separation agreement signed (by both parties) and dated back in April 2012 and do not wish to concur more solicitor fees.We have lived apart for more than one year and there are no children and no financial ties remain between myself and my husband.
I am applying for divorce under Irreconcilable differences, if preparing the writ myself do I have to provide evidence of the reasons why the marriage broke down? or do I just state that as the reason for divorce.
Hi thank you for your reply just a couple more questions in relation to your answer.
When you say "draw up corroborating affidavits" what do you mean by this?
I take it executed and signed means by a justice of the peace? and the Minute of Decree are the reasons for the marriage breakdown. He was physically abusive to me and my mother - would this mean that I am required to provide witnesses (as I never contacted the police).
