Still waiting for Financial Remedy Order

5 years 2 weeks ago #469436 by Rob68
At the end of my FH 5 weeks ago, I requested from my solicitor and barrister to see the draft copy before it was sent to my STBX.
I waited 10 days before chasing my solicitor. I received no draft, no reply to my messages apart from a quick email saying that I will be contacted when there are any news, and no reason of such a delay.
In the meantime, my STBX has received three drafts of the Order and she was indeed surprised they were not passed on to me.
She let me have a look at the latest and indeed, I found some points that needed clarification.
I contacted my barrister directly a week ago with these points. She promised to get on with it straight away, but I have heard nothing from her since.

This delay is extremely stressful as we are still living together and I am worried my STBX will be spending more of our savings.

Is it normal to take so long? I am reluctant to complain officially as I have been told that my solicitor could just drop my case and leave me in a more difficult situation.

Could anyone please help?
