I have practically filled out most of the D8 Petition form details apart from my ex partners details (dob and occupation). On several occasions my ex-partner says she will phone me to give me the details but then she doesn''t phone. Everytime I phone her to get the details, she then says she will phone me in a couple of days but she doesn''t phone.
My Ex Partner does not want to email or text the details so it''s now becoming a bit difficult.
Is there any way I can submit the D8 to the courts without the dob and occupation ?
The marriage certificate has her age on there, will this be enough ?
Can I put down that my partner withheld this information ?
Sorry, a Consent Order means what it says, there must be consent, and if there isn''t, there will be no consent order. As they say, you can take a horse to water, but - - -
The Court won''t make an order without evidence of the financial means of both parties. If she won''t provide hers, you are snookered.
You might tell her that if she carries on playing ducks and drakes, you will have to go to Court and then she''ll have to fill in a form E, and you can send her a copy of that, which might just possibly induce a more co-operative attitude.
Do as LMM says threaten her with court and having to fill in a form E - that''ll probably do the trick. I wouldn''t put down that she''s withheld the information they might think it a little odd that you didn''t know your wife''s dob or occupation? Can you not search online for her birth certificate - you can get basic information without costing anything.
Look, I''m sorry, you need more than her age. You need details of her finances.
There is no way round this. If she doesn''t fill in the form D8there will be no Consent Order, simple as that.
I am sorry to be brutally frank with you, but the fact is, that there are some divorcing people who, for one reason or another, cannot or will not engage with the process.
You can just divorce her, and take no steps to sort out the finances - quite a few divorcing couples do. And, I don''t doubt, in many cases, nothing untoward happened and everything is hunky dory. The cases we get on wiki of course, are those where something went wrong, and then it''s a case of sorting out the mess.
If you can''t get agreement, you have no option but to go to Court and she can be forced to disclose details of her finances. Or if she doesn''t, she may find herself in clink.
