The Absolute was delayed. The judge was fair enough and tried to encourage the STBX to get things resolved. Since that hearing at the end of Aprl, nothing, absolutely nothing, has happened. The STBX said that she wanted to do disclosure through the solicitors (bearing in mind that she is at a buy now pay later solicitors) but despite us agreeing and compiling this, her solicitors have not been in touch since.
We have now decided enough is enough and we are going to issue proceedings. After 5 years separation and 17 months of divorce process, we need to take this by the throat and move forward!! Blood and sand!! Sadly this is all motivated by vengeance and is not being done in order to protect her interests. I doubt her atrocious solicitor is being frugal with his fees after all this time. And the amount she was was going to get was somewhere between 15-20K at best. It all seems so futile. But there you go. I will keep you informed.
