I am the Respondant in a divorce, which is currently at the Decree Nisi stage. I've received a court order for my financial assets etc, to be submitted within the month.
I'm within 3 weeks of leaving the Armed Forces, and becoming unemployed. Making it difficult to obtain the required Pension forcast, as that takes four to six weeks. I am also trying to work out my living expenses/costs, as I've lived in service accommodation overseas, for many years.
My STBX and I, have a signed and agreed separation statement (Not Legal?). Whereby she keeps the house and contents. Whilst I retain my pension, although I still maintain the mortgage payments.
The gratuity lump sum, from the service was left out of the agreement, but was to be split between the mortgage and my new set-up charges.
So the advice I'm seeking is, are the Wikivorce Solicitor's the right people to go to, by ordering the "Standard Divorce and Consent Order"?
I'm still overseas, and therefore do not want to pay for something, they are unable to deal with.
As she, now wants the house, a lump sum and maintence. It throw's the agreement out the window, and becomes a line of contention. (Sorry, I just realised that I'd left this bit out on the original query).
Therefore it doesn't fit the pre-requisits under their (Wikivorce)service provion. Just as I suspected.
I guess I'm going to have to call them, once they're open, to see which service I need to order.
Or how to find a good Solicitor through recommendation, if we're not allowed to publish names?
