My husband has sent a Petition for divorce but the grounds he has given for my unreasonable behaviour are complete lies. I left because of his adultery. Can I suggest to my solicitor that he has knowingly committed perjury???
I know right now you feel a sense of injustice but noone gets to see the reason and the bottom line is why waste your money! Mine sent me onea week after we spoke about it with 5 years seperation on it,after promising he would wait until we can be living seperately for two years so I could get used to the shock! 5 years seperation??? he was still sleeping in my bed!! Forget it and get rid as soon as you can! all it will do is be a waste of YOUR money! xGood Luck xx Opps I just remembered, theres a little box where you can write,.....this reason is rubbish but Im gonna agree to it anyway!!
Alot of people do this if they dont have real reasons...mine did that to me he put that because of my attitude towards his parents i didnt let him see his parents or the children...the funniest thing was he woks with them ant the mother in law picked my son up from school...believe me it does catch up with them!...just remind them of the real reasons...
UB petitions are all about one persons perception and even if they are all made up, it''s easier all round to accept. Doing anything else is likely to cost time and money.
I can totally sympathise with your plight: my ex petitioned me under totally bogus grounds even though she was the one who was having an affair.
What I did was ask my solicitor to send back what was a ''rider'' in response the the Petition. In it I said, ''I agree that our marriage has come to an end and I''m not going to challenge this, but the UB points are patiently nonsense for the following reasons''.
The judge accepted the UB Petition (since I said I wasn''t going to fight it), but my ex, the judge and her solicitor also saw all the points that I had written. Of course, my ex went nuts since it made her look like an idiot (my demolition of all the points were very thorough and systematic), but that wasn''t my problem...
I agree with the replies on here, it will bother you but try and rise above it and consider why he and/or his solicitor has felt the need to do it. It doesnt make any difference at all to any outcome whatever people may say to the contrary.
In instances where one sides Petition contains lies have a think why they feel the need to make such staements. Maybe its a way of them not taking responsibility for the break up because it''s easier for them that way?
Maybe its the way your ex really saw things which you may not agree with but is how he felt?
Also bare in mind that some solicitors who still like to practice in the dark age (unfortunately there are still many) will exagerate the clients comments. I have never been quite sure why they feel the need to do it other than to wind the other side up in an attempt to get a poor reaction and portray thier client in a better light. For this reason alone it''s good to try and rise above it.
Some solicitors have alot to answer for. the legal practice is a dark art protected for the benefit of the few despite what their literature says.
I very much hope not but there may be much bigger battles to fight along the way so pick your battles wisely and when it matters most. Above all else try and stay composed and keep a clear head even if you are burning inside. I couldnt do any of that but i wish i had.
