the Judge declared that the marriage between my daughter, petitioner and my my son-in-law, respondent, had broken down irretrievably and decreed that the said marriage be dissolved unless sufficient cause be shown to the Court within six weeks from making this decree why such decree should not be made absolute.
It would appear that the husband's petition has been dismissedalthough it is very difficult to know without knowing the full facts of thecase.
Judges don't like cross petitions because they serve no purpose and waste court time and money.
She is now at liberty to apply for the decree absolute (if the timehas passed) as she is the petitioner. He can object of all the financial issueshave not yet been resolved
Does that answer the question? I am happy to answer specific points.
Can I help further?
