Hi can anyone help. I am getting divorced my wife has used unreasonable behaviour whilst I accept two of the reasons one of the reasons is untrue, very hurtful and it seems to be being used to influence future settlements, is it worth me challenging? Thanks

Probably not. No-one except you, your legal teams and the judge see the content of the Petition. Contesting is expensive and takes time. You can say that you don''t agree with the contents of the statement but that you agree to the divorce in your response.

It will make no difference to the settlement at all. The only things that do are really heinous things like proven violence that has permanently disabled her.

best wishes,
Sadie

Gambling can affect a financial settlement if the respondent has been reckless with the joint assets. Child abuse can affect the outcome of children proceedings. Generally, the conduct cited in the Petition cannot usually be brought forward to any other proceedings unless there is a casual link.
