So I rang up the court (someone on here gave me the wonderful advice) and the kind lady said that they had sent back the papers (I am respondendt for UB and said I didnt agree terms but wouldnt defend it)

Anyway, she was ever so helpful and rang his solicitor up and called me straight back and said , his solicitor had sent him the papers and he has had them almost 3 weeks and done nothing!!

She said I was to wait 5 days and if he hasnt sent them in, I was to all her back personally and she would help me and tell me about cross petitioning.

I'm lost, I dont understand this, he said the only way I would be free ofhim is if I signed what he wrote and so I did but I put I didnt accept the terms and left him for domestic violence and put see police report.

So did he get to see I had wrote that?
Can he just not send back whatever it is they sent him?

Will I have to pay money now? ( I have none and left with the clothes on my back, I put down I would not meet court costs due to having nothing)

I'm gutted, I had thought it would have been any day now I would have the decri nisi date come through :(

I'mglad I found this site, cos if not I would never have thought to call the courts and not have found this out!

Hello chillygirl stay carm (well try to) if i understand you you sent back the petition without ticking the box to accept his reasons thats ok its your right and then sent them back to the court thats your first bit done called giveing service.
Your H should then fill in d8 (think its d8) directions for court then apply for the nisi sounds like he may have done nothing not so good if you choose to cross petition for DV it will cost you unless you have legal aid? im sure theres another way ill check first though ill get back to you soon, and to the older boarders ANSWER THIS for chillygirl please cya soon

I dont know, the lady said they sent them back for the deri nici and his solicitor has heard nothing back from him.

More stress I could do without!

Is it the case he can just hold on to them for a few months?? CosI had a time limit to send mine back, I would have thought he was the same.

Thanks for helping me Dukey

Chillygirl,

Put a jumper on. Nothing to fret about at the moment. Ball in husbands court. But you have done all you need to do for now. Sit tight and stay warm. No Solicitor or expenditure necessary at this time.

Stop fretting!

Take care

Mike
