TOPIC: Divorce advise needed

Divorce advise needed 2 months 3 weeks ago #99134

Me and my ex wife have been separated for 14 months.
My ex has messaged me and asked it there is any way of speeding up the divorce (currently only 2 years separation valid) and she is happy for me to use unreasonable grounds as a way to speed it up.

I have looked this up online and seen I need to provide 4-5 examples. Is there any advise you can provide on reasons I could use and how to document them?

I have thought of social media usage and not socialising anymore as a couple. I just don’t know how to document it the way they are needed to be presented at court.

H there

There’s plenty of info about this on the web, I found a useful pdf from a company called divorce online, I will share the link with you, as long as you understand that sharing this with you is not an endorsement of the company, we dont advertise on behalf of commercial businesses, but there’s so much good advice on this website, I felt it was ok to share.

NOTE : I’ve removed the link now, as you’ve seen it and had already been on the site.

Best of luck

Thank you. I saw this last night and have used this as examples I could use.

I have created 7 examples and just need to understand how to right them as required in the form and also if they will be acceptable via the courts

Do you have experience in writing the reason? From help you have provided for my previous questions on the forum you seemed very informed on divorce and family matters.

Hi there

I have no experience about the divorce application side of things, my area of knowledge is more children/contact matters and writing statements, to be honest. I would assume that you could just copy the examples as they appear on the pdf.

Here’s a link to a some guidelines produced by Advice Now... pages 20/21 go into some detail about your particular question, but I would advise that you read through the whole guide, to help you understand the process.

Unreasonable behaviour is a fairly vague term, and only need one compelling reason. However, has either of you had a new relationship? If so, then technically this is an affair, and that's good enough reason - the person doesn't need to be named in the divorce.

Just wanted to give you an update. I submitted the allocation last week and the ex wife has processed her side aswell.

We are now just waiting to see if the decree nisi will be pronounced and when.

Do you know how long this normally takes?

it should take a couple of weeks.

*Sorry Bill I’ve removed your link to the solicitors, there’s good info but we don’t like to link to commercial business... even though they can give good advice.

Dadforever should find the information in the Advice Now link above.
