Has anyone been in a situation where their spouse tried to avoid service of the petition.
My soon to be ex agreed that the petition should be sent to the home address after we made a decision to divorce. He moved out soon afterwards and is now ignoring all my emails about the arrival of the petition via post. What do I do next? Has anyone experienced the above? If so how should I progress this? What are the timeframes for responding to the petition? I think it’s 7 days. What will happen if the respondent doesn’t respond within the deadline?
Thanks in advance for your responses
My ex ignored papers, so I paid for a process server to take a new set to him at work . I added the fee to the bill of costs which the judge awarded me. Once they've been served it doesn't matter if he replies or not, you can ask the court to go ahead without his agreement as the papers will be confirmed as having been served.
