Hi Ive recently been told that the judge will not consider my Petition for divorce as my ex petition filed in 2011 had not been dissolved. She hadnt applied for Decree Nisi for some reason... Is there anyway i can apply to dissolve hers so i can re apply mine? Or will I have to ask her to do so? thank you

You can make an application to dismiss the Petition "for want of prosecution" this usually requires a D11 application which can be dealt with over the phone.
