No, nothing has been done yet. not even paper work.
Only agreed to get divorced.
thank you! just one more question.
So I or my husband start applying for the divorce petiton now? and wait to be issued while im staying here?
it will take two months to be issued? (for unreasonable behaviour)
Divorces usually take about 5-6 months from the date that the petition is issued by the county court
Sorry, need to make sure, what do u mean by 'from the date that the petition is issued by the country court'?
the date, I or my husband applied for the divorce petition? or the day the court accepted and issued?
I am confused...5-6month total to get divorced or another 5-6months after the court issued the divorce????
and if i go back to my home country before the divorce is accepted by England law, I can still do divorce and change my name in my country according to the law in my country. Does this affect the divorce petiton here?
ok, so if the divorce is issued in my country(Japan), then I can change the name back to my Japanese family name.
Can I also inform the court that I changed my name? in addition to the address?
ok, i understand. but my concern is....
I will apply for divorce petition in two months, then go back to Japan.
I will then submit the divorce paper in Japan, then the divorce in Japan will be accepted right away, so I can change my name.
So, I was asking if I could also inform the court that the divorce was issued in Japan, and now i use my maiden name. Is that ok?
Hope this will be my last question and I will be rate u as excellent !
ok, thanks. other family law solicitor here answered that UK accepts Japanese divorce, so I dont have to ask for divorce petition here.
Thanks for your great help, anyway!
