My stbx will not defend the petition if I agree and confirm on 2 points.
1. That your client will not rely upon the allegations of behaviour contained in his divorce petition as proven in connection with proceedings relating to the parties'' son, the parties'' financial and property issues or any other proceedings. This would not prevent your client from trying to prove these allegations afresh.
2. That your client makes no claim for costs against our client in connection with the divorce decree proceedings.
I think point 1 is OK.
For point 2, does it put me at a disadvantage?
I don''t mind paying minor costs such as court fees. Is there any other cost that I should be aware of?
I know it doesn''t matter but I am actually the male.
Don''t want people to get confused when they search the forum for advice.
Hope we can agree things during mediation. 1st session wasn''t that productive. The mediator couldn''t separate the lies from facts. It was more like a counselling session! I''ve provided feedback to the mediator. Hope she improves next time. Her charge ain''t cheap!
