oh sure but if she is dragging her feet to frustrate me then i guess the Court will not be sympathetic to her?


It would depend what is meant by dragging her feet. As Ruby has said the court or your stbx may not agree to you gsi I g the absolute until finances are sorted.

Who petitioned for divorce? If you are the Respondent and the Petitioner hasn''t applied you can apply for the absolute 3 months after the date when the Petitioner could have applied. However, apart from the possibility that the absolute can be postponed if no longer being married would financially disadvantage your spouse you need to take care not to fall into the remarriage trap. Someone who has remarried cannot make a new financial application and you could be stuck in limbo unable to separate the finances.

I'' the respondent. Guess what I''m trying too achieve is some pressure too reach a settlement which I have actively sort over several years via meetings, email, and detailed proposals.
