and judge wrote to her that :

please note that the district judge having considered the evidence filed , is not satisfied that the petitioner is entitled to the decree sought , because

 

The petitioner is to explain why there is no statement of arrangement with respect to the children referred to at part 7 of the petition on what basis are the not ''children of the family''

 

The petitioner should deal with the above matters and renew the request for directions for trial

 

what should i do now?

 

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

can you reply me plz?

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
All that needs to be done is for your ex to complete a Statement Of Arrangements for Children Form.
The Court wants to know what the arrangements are for those children - no more and no less.
Her completing the form will not make you responsible for the Children.
You have said it is her Petition so there should be no reason for her not to complete the form with the necessary details
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

as you said: select this option:


No agreement has been reached and no application has been made for a maintenance calculation?


By selecting this, will judge not take his decition against me


and what should i say where judge asked her to explain what basis are the not ''children of the family''?

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
The Court will not do anything at all - this is merely for their information.
She should explain that the children are not yours and you never treated them as such
