I am divorcing from the mother of my child. She is a British
Hello, My name is***** am divorcing from the mother of my child. She is a British citizen and live in Brighton with our 15 years old son. I am French citizen and live and work as a doctor in France. We married in Paris in 2000 with a french marriage contract and are physically separated since July 2013. We have seen a mediator and my wife sent a divorce petition to the english court on 5 novembre 2015, but we didn't agree and I never returned "the acknowledgment of service" from the court. Since, we recently agreed to do a divorce in France based on a mutual consent but she changed her mind again and went to see a sollicitor in Brighton. He asks me to return the "acknowledgment of service" to the court otherwise he would amend the divorce petition so that it would be a divorce on the basis of my unreasonable behaviour during the marriage. I wish to follow the process initiated in France but need to know if this british divorce petition of 2015 could prevent in any way the divorce to take place in France. Could you help me regarding this matter or recommand me to someone. Thank you in advance for any help you could provide me with. Yours faithfully. … read more
