Hi,

I am the respondent in a divorce. I had a solicitor acting for me but we''ve parted company, so I''ll be acting in person from now on.

I wasn''t planning to do this, but I''m not sure if it is worth getting a new solicitor at this stage. I don''t think there is much left to do, but I''m not sure, which is why I''m here!

The solicitor has sent me three things:
  • Notice of Acting in Person
  • Certificate of entitlement to a decree
  • Certificate for the purposes of section 41 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973

So I guess I need to send the first one off to the court. But I''m not sure what to do with the others.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Yes indeed send the notice of acting to court,the rest, well don''t worry about it, the applicant will apply for the absolute in due course, in terms of the divorce nothing needs to be done by you other than the notice.
