Does your ex agree?
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
We need to know just how far the paperwork has reached.
If in fact the Petition has been issued and sent to your ex and it has been acknowledged then all you can do is write to the Court and ask them to list an early date for the "Conditional Order".
There has to be six weeks between the Conditional and the final orders - UNLESS there is an overwhelmingly urgent reason to shorten this - usually involving a terminal diagnosis for either party to a further marriage or their very nearest relatives
If in fact the papers have not yet been submitted then frankly there is little chance of the matter being completed in time
Please ask i you need further details
The issue is not her agreement - the issue is where you are at the moment - has the paperwork actually been issued?
The fact that it is now going before the Judge will speed things up immensely. The judge will usually be able to action matters particularly if there is agreement from the ex.
For clarity - ar you saying that the petition has not yet been issued at all?
