Has the solicitor sent the Petition to the Court? If so, it could be around 2 or 3 weeks from the time of the Court receiving the papers to you receiving yours, which the Court would send to you, not his solicitors.

Certainly, you can write them a letter inquiring as to the date of the petition being submitted to court, but I would strongly advise that you do not use "text-speak" as in your post, or you may not get a response.

thank you x no i would most certainly wouldn''t. I do apologize for using tx. so do you think that the solicitor would talk to me? i have been told that they would not due to client confidentiality. I am most eager to find pot about the divorce aknowledgement, as my ex has told me so many lies regarding this

I would suggest ringing the Court to ask if papers received.

I patiently waited over two months to hear back from the Court after my ex told me that he was happy with the Petition after speaking to a solicitor & had signed & returned them.

Quite by chance I came across the envelope with forms uncompleted & unsigned under a sofa cushion.

Questioned him without disclosing my find but told him that I had rung the Court which I had to confirm forms not returned & he still claimed that he had sent them.

It did amuse me somewhat that I photocopied & replaced them where I found them & watched him fill in the ''Replacements from Court''

I know this may come as a surprise to many but you just can''t always believe what your told when going through a divorce :ohmy:

You do not say if you are the Respondent or Petitioner. Whatever your status, you should receive a copy of the Petition and aknowledgement of Service, but three weeks is not long: if worried, suggest, as Ruby Tuesday says, you write to the court asking if Petition has been received.

Thank you both for your replies. I am the petitioner in the proceeding and quite honestly going it alone is quite scary, never know what to do next x :)
