No, as stated in the original question
Solicitor: Clare, Family Solicitor replied 3 years ago
Hi
My apologies - you had said that.
The fact that finances have not yet been agreed is the only basis on which a divorce based on five year separation can be delayed/stopped.
Accordingly if you tick that box then the financial issues will become a central issue.
The court will then expect you to start taking active steps to resolve the financial matters by making a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting appointment with a local family mediator
www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk
If your ex will mediate well and good.
If not then you can apply to the court for the financial issues to be resolved.
Indeed this is the process you need to follow whether or not you tick the box - but there is more pressure on her if you do!
Please ask if you need further details
