My divorce from hell is finally over...i received my Decree Absolute in post on 9th June along with my birthday cards....how ironic! I received legal aid to help fund my divorce. The marital home had to be sold and monies were held with solicitor until FDR. I was awarded the funds from marital home. I currently have no home and am looking to now buy another house but need every penny awarded to enable me to do this. My solicitor are keeping back monies for legal aid but said i can apply to defer payment as i need everything to enable to get a new home. How do i go about this. Do i phone Legal Services commission myself? How long does this take to sort...I know i will have to pay interest on money owed but need this to purchase a new house otherwise cannot do. I agreed this at FDR or otherwise would not have settled? Any help would be much appreciated. jo
there is a form which would normally be completed by your sollcitor and signed by you. I think it is part of the applciation to discharge the certificate. I sugegst you ask your solictior whether s/he is completing the form and if not, ask her to give you what you need.
