Where's my paperwork
Anonymous123 - 30 June, 2017 01:48PM
Hi I sent divorce petition in January this year it is not end of June I haven't had even 1 letter back from the court. They haven't sent any paperwork to my stbex.
I rang the court today the guy I spokt to said he can't find anything on the system.
The paperwork was deffinetly delivered to the court as I used a signed for service.
The only marriage certificate I had was the one I sent them.
I just hope and pray nothings been misplaced by the court as I have been so patient.
Pls if you have any help or advice or have been through the same thing pls let me know any help and advice is welcome.

Wait! What! You waited six months and only now thought it may have gone walk abouts! Wow! That is patient.
You have a delivery receipt with the name of who signed. Has your cheque cleared? What did they Court suggest you should do or did they say they would look into it? Worst case scenario, you have to start again surely. It's a real shame you have waited so long. Paperwork goes missing all the time. At one point they had lost my entire file and I had to lend the Judge mine for the hearing. It turned up at the wrong Court eventually.

I check d the delivery status and got rid of the receipt like an idiot.
I applied for the help with fees so no cheque included.
I was told this morning that if it had been signed for it wouldn't have been misplaced.
I was told to email the divorce centre which I did now waiting for a reply. I really hope they have it. Can't do much without a marriage certificate. As I was married abroad I don't think I'll be able to get a duplicate from here.
Yh that is patient as I'm doin it all by myself they say it takes between 4-9 months atleast so I've just been waiting like an idiot.
Feel so angry and stupid right now.
