My other half''s wife has filed for divorce stating, qiute frankly, a pack of lies - adultery, etc. Im not too bothered about this, I understand contesting it would be expensive and I am broke. However she is suing me for the costs. I know I can go before the court and explain why I dont think I should pay - SHE had the affair!! - but will this court appeareance cost me? Im trying to avoid solicitors as I really cant aford it. Thank you.
This would mean she would have to 1. Prove their was an affair 2. acted within 6 months of finding out (i.e filing for divorce) and 3. Make you party to the divorce- which NO solicitor woul ever advise.
I wouldnt fret, it is very unlikely that she will do that
BTW- i filed for divorce on grounds of UB.
She crossed and countered (a waste of time and money) on the grounds I had an affair
I could have fought this as it had been over the 6 month limit before any actions were taken and even then they were mine.
I agreed to it and we went through a very expensive court system. When the Nisi came it had me still as the petitioner- something I kept to myself. We went all the way to FDR and inthe end- the divorce papers (my absolute) have ME as the petitioner and HER as the respondant
There is something gratifying about knowing I divorced her./
Neatly picked up, Somuch2know Im going through my own divorce, hence the slip - Im forever asking advice. Mine seems relatively simple compared to his (Im the petioner so Ive no experience as a respondent).
So... if he sends the form back denying her claims - which I KNOW are false - then provided he doesnt use a solicitor, it shouldnt costs him anything? He won''t be slammed with her costs?
