I agree to divorce but not on her allegations and she does not want to split the assets and she committed adultery. The are no children and we have been married for 7 years. I just want that the assets are split and that she participates to the household. How do I express that: with a letter? Do you suggest I do not reply to the allegation and do not mention the adultery? That does not seem very efficient to defend my position.
I understand, so, in summary: 1) I agree to the divorce but disagree on part of her petition because of her allegations and because she does not want a financial order (do I say "I defend the case"?) 2) I ask the court to proceed to a financial settlement and I explain the reasons 3) I pay £245 for this. Can I do this by mail in responding to the petition? Thanks
OK I will accept to divorce without comments. So I must wait until the decree nisi to apply for a financial order or can I send that with the petition approval?
Also can I change court for the financial order because she applied 200 miles from where I live.
Thank you again. To end I will proceed with a financial order. My question is : do I join a letter to that to explain my estimate of my assets versus hers? She sold her apartment in South Africa (!) just before asking for divorce and paid it because she never participated to our household. How far do I have to detail all this? must I join already my bank statements etc?
ps: I will rate you excellent :)
Hi No need to send a letter - just send the form in (and the fee) and you will start off a process which involves a Form setting out all the assets you each have. If you wish to try and avoid the expense of a court application you can try and discuss matters with her using Family Mediation (www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk) Claire
