Hi, I am the respondent in a divorce case in UK, and I wish to reject the jurisdiction of the court (as we are not domiciled in UK). Can you please advise what form(s) I need to complete to do this and where they can be downloaded (as I'm not in UK).
Thanks

Customer:

I would just like to know which for I need to complete, that was my question, I didnt receive the answer!

INC :

Hi, can I ask a few more questions..

INC :

Do yo have any ties to the UK such as children, property, businesses etc?

Customer:

no, none. I do not wish for any advice on jurisdiction issues, I just would like to know what form I need!

Hi
There is space on the Acknowledgement of Service for you to notify the court that you do not accept Jurisdiction and you should also file a formal defence confirming the basis on which you are challenging Jurisdiction.
This is not a standard form it is one which has to be drafted to reflect the facts of your case
I hope that this is of assistance to you
