Hi all,

Had an appointment with my solicitor last wednesday and instructed him to begin the divorce. He said he was going to write to stbxh to agree grounds before he did anything ''official''. Is it standard practice for the solicitor to send me a copy of any letters he sent? Things between the stbxh are particularly strained after issues surrounding contact last week and him publicly telling me to ''go f****** die'' on fb so i''m more than a little concerned about how he may react to the solicitors letter. I was hoping i would receive a copy too so i could at least be aware of when he receives it. Waiting to hear anything is driving me crazy!!!

Yes it is normal for a solicitor to send a draft Petition to the respondent before sending it to court.

You can insist that he sends a copy of everything to you also if you want, but it will obviously cause your bills will be higher. A certain level of trust is required between solicitor and client.

Block him on facebook, you don''t have to put up with that kind of thing.
