Hiya CJ. You could cross petition but its a waste of your money. The div process is just that. It doesent matter who initiates it and who did what. Just be thankful that he is paying. Sign and return the petition. The money side of divorce is called ancilory relief. Either of you can start it. But I would wait until the petition has been signed and returned. You should apply for something call an Interim maintence order. This will give you some money whilst the AR process is being conducted.
As part of AR you should include his gf as she lessons his outgoings becuase she is providing housing. This decreses his outgoings. Talk to a solicitor. You may qualify for legal aid. All the best, Chris.

This legally binding agreement defines how assets (e.g. properties and pensions) are to be divided.
