Thank you. I am going to hand over to my partner as she has more information.
Thank you so much Claire for you advice, this sounds exactly the information that I have been trying to find out, over the last few years. I have looked at the form and would just like to clarify the following; when applying for the order for the decree nisi with an order for the costs, a) are these 2 different orders and b) could I add the costs of applying for a new divorce too?
Thank you again for the clarity, it is very much appreciated and your kind offer for me to ask further questions when I fill out the form. I will complete it this evening when my daughter is in bed, so that I am able to concentrate and probably will come back to you then.
Help please! I started to fill out the D11 form last night.
In section 3, I have been asked to submit a draft copy of the order that I am applying for. Is there a template for this or do I construct the draft order myself on a word document and if so, apart from personal details, completion of the Decree nisi, the fee and the reason for the application, is there anything else I need to include?
Also section 10 requests what information will I be relying on. I am planning to supply an attached statement for this. I was intending to put the date of the first application (2005) and my husbands admittance that he is delaying the process on purpose saying that he will complete the form when he is 'good and ready' as an example of how he has been stalling and why it has taken 8 years to date.
Additionally I was going to include a few sentences of what I have tried to do to move this forward and a brief chronology for context-perhaps writing half a page in total. Will this be sufficient?.
I have just completed the application ready to send to the court tomorrow. I wanted to say a big Thank you for your advice and help- it was fantastic and therefore an Excellent rating.
Best wishes and sincere appreciation.
Following your great advice our Divorce case was finally dismissed in court.
I would greatly appreciate some further advice to get my Divorce to completion.However, there are a few issues that i would like advice on.
I am about to start proceedings and have tried to have discussions with my ex which have already become difficult. When he started the divorce in 2005 we had agreed the division of assets with the help of both solicitors when the marital home was sold. I used my settlement as down payment for the property that I now live in.
Now 8 years on, I received an inheritance (about 5 years ago) from a family member that he is aware about but not how much. I used most of the money to pay off some of my mortgage and some I have put into savings. My 12 year old daughter lives with me. I am not sure what he did with his share of the money.
a) Where do I stand legally on the issue of my inheritance.
b) Is he entitled to any of my inheritance since the asset's were agreed and divided at the time of our separation / divorce.
c) Do I have to include the inheritance in the financial settlement?
d) Can he insist on finding out how much I got and do I have to tell him.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
