I assume this divorce is using the English/Welsh court, not Scottish?
No, plans for marriage/IVF will not affect it. If she objects to the Decree Absolute due to the finances not being resolved, then the best way forward is to resolve the finances. If she is not co-operating on a voluntary basis then he should apply to court. This is the only way to set a definite timescale.
We have been trying in scottish courts for 18 months now in english courts for 8 months, she said that she is co-operating but then doesnt or takes months to answer letters. She gets legal aid and we dont, so it is costing us alot of money.
He is trying his best to do things right but we are getting stopped at every turn!! I think its totally unfair that your whole life can be kept on hold because someone doesnt want to co-operate!
If you are thinking of marrying your partner needs to tell his solicitor and be careful not to fall into the remarriage trap.
Someone who remarries can''t make a new application for property adjustment orders or financial provision to settle the finances on divorce. That means as Respondent unless your partner makes an application before remarrying he could be stuck in limbo until his wife proceeds, if she ever does.
