unwanted divorce was created by ConsUK
Hi, I need any kind of advice. In this moment I am a responded of a divorce petition. The biggest problem is even if my wife have all the rights to want a divorce as I did something that have bring the social services on our familly ( no , I haven't phisicaly harm my wife or my son , no adultery and so on , it is about a conviction) , actualy the only reason for this divorce is the fact that social services are thretening her with removing the child if she will continue to have a relation with me.
so anyone knows what can happen if I defend this divorce , I dont have any money to pay for solicitors , the only taught is if I can go myself and make a plea in front of the judge but on the other side I dont want to risk the child. If he can have a father at least to have a mother , but we still love each other and this is even more painfull.

In general anyone in England/Wales who wants to get a divorce can get one,
so long as they complete the paperwork properly.

I assume the petition is for unreasonable behaviour. In which case - no matter what you say in front of the judge, you will almost certainly not be able to stop the divorce proceeding (you may manage to delay it for a few months).

Given the above situation - you are probably better to spend your time and effort working out how you can all make the best of the post divorce situation.

With or without the divorce, you will both remain the parents of the child and should focus on thinking about what is best for the child.
