Hi My husband was having an affair and naturally i threw him out, wasnt the first time, he left and moved in with the woman he was seeing somewhere hundreds of miles away and i didnt hear a thing until last July when he messaged me on face book asking if i would agree to a divorce as he is engaged! i agreed and he posted me papers which i signed but then havent heard anything since! how do i find out if im divorced or not? would i get a copy of the Nisi and absoloute? i think it was one he was doing himself rather than through a solictor, ive sent him messages but he doesnt respond so ive no idea what to think, any help would be appreciated. Thanks Tracy
Tracey, if he has petitioned for divorce, then he will have to serve the Petition on you. There would ( or should ! ) have been an a form called an acknowledgment of service which is in a prescribed format.
So if you have a copy of the Petition, which I assume ( hopefully correctly ) you have, you will find a reference number of the case, and I''d simply ring up the Court where the petition was issued and ask them what''s what.
But surely you need to sort out the finances as well ? Are you saying you''re making no financial claims against him ? Or come to that is he making any claims against you ?
The divorce is always the easy bit in 99.5% of cases ; what causes the problems are issues with children and finances.
Hi thanks for the response, ive had nothing other than the intial form to sign there is no finances to fight over we were only married 3 years no property no children no savings so it is a simple divorce as far as i can see but havent heard a word since signing the intial papers so i have to assume he hasnt done anything with it i guess.
