Delaying consent form
Bumblebumble - 16 January, 2018 01:56PM
I've filed for 2 years separation with consent on the grounds the divorce is not contested or delayed.

I have given 14 days to get him to sign and return the form.

He keeps refusing saying he needs a loan to pay his solicitor then says he has stopped instructing them. He owes £900 outstanding fees from June 2017.

It's been made very clear that if he doesn't comply he will have to pay for all costs.

Shall i reply to his letters saying he needs to get a loan etc before he can proceed? Seems like he's trying to stall. His debt has been outstanding for over 6 months.

Do I just wait for 14 days then proceed as originally stated in the first letter. I'm worried I'll get caught somewhere as he's said he can't afford it ??

Please help

I am baffled by this. If you have issued a divorce based on two years' separation with consent then the divorce cannot proceed without your husband's consent. If he will not give it then you cannot progress a divorce based on this ground. He can withhold his consent for any reason he wants or for no reason at all if he is so minded.
