My partner claims that he has filed for divorce in the UK. I'm an American and in the US these filings are part of the public record. Is this the case in the UK? Is there a way for me to verify that he has actually filed?
I'm sorry. I wasn't clear at all in what I said. I'm the unmarried partner of someone who claims that he has filed for divorce. I'm not sure if this is true or not and I'm wondering if there's a way to verify it.

Hmmmm.... sounds like a 'trust' issue!
What I can advise, is that even if he's started divorce, it could take 1-2 yrs for him to actually be divorced. So, you'll need to question if you have the stamina and patience to support him through that. Many new partners post on this Forum, so you're in good company for when the going gets tough!
It can be quite frustrating to be in a 'new' space, in a new relationship, whilst your beloved is emotionally still 'elsewhere', and stuck in the negative space of divorce.
If you do distrust him, can't you just ask to see the paperwork? He'd of had to instruct a solicitor to act for him.
I just hope you're not a 'Buffer Zone'. I hope your relationship survives this, and I hope he's not lying to you!
