I received my draft divorce petition last Friday. I don't have a solicitor and planned to leave my husband everything, I'm now regretting that decision and want to seek legal advice myself.
My question is if I don't respond to the draft with amendments or tell my husbands solicitor that I will be seeking my own legal advice, will that cause problems. I've not been asked to sign anything for the divorce.
The reason I'm not just telling them I'm seeking legal advice is I'm not sure if it's too late. I signed for the house to be transferred over into my husbands name and am thinking it's probably too late to ask for something. Although at the time of signing it I felt a little pressured into doing it by my husband.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
According to the letter with the draft petition I have 7 days to contest or seek legal advice... but if I've not signed anything surely I can just do what I want to my own timetable???
