My ex has failed to reply to my questionnaire, we both had directions from the court. I complied, when I contacted him to confirm he had posted his reply to me, he read the message and has chosen to ignore it.
I’m going to file a Penal notice, but am I the applicant or the petitioner?, I actually thought they both meanT the same, but seemingly not.
The divorce and the financial proceedings are separate applications.
This means that you can be a petitioner in the divorce proceedings and a respondent in the financial proceedings. Using all permutations you can be:
petitioner and applicant
petitioner and respondent
respondent and applicant
respondent and respondent
In relation to the financial proceedings if you applied to the court and paid £255 (or applied for fee remission) you are the applicant. If you received the other side's Form A and notice of first appointment you are the respondent.
