I believe the childrens arrangements should be formally agreed by both parents before a dicorce petition can be served.
Thankyou DL, I thought Id done wrong there....again! And I suppose this only proves that the procedures and possible ramifications should be issued to each party once the Divorce Petition is submitted.
Im sure if Id have had this information (or had found wiki sooner) I may not have had half the shocks that I have along the way. How does it go "knowledge is power"
Allowing the Absolute to go through before the Financial side was sorted allowed my ex to then hold the balance of power. Push push push to make decisions that I was incapable of making. It also put my pension rights at risk had he remarried (mind you he may be!! ). If he had wanted a divorce that quickly then maybe by waiting until the Finances were sorted would make him more reasonable and open to fairness and more eager to get things sorted instead of playing games.
However, apart from anything else the ease of divorce does not allow the partner left behind the time to get used to the idea, but more importantly the children.
