Topic: Got Deemed Service, what do I do next?
Written By: james_19742000 - 4 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
OK, after several months of trying, the court have sent me confirmation this morning that the form I filled in a few weeks ago has now been accepted as deemed service, I am doing a DIY divorce as its quite straight forward etc, just wondered what I do now, the court has all the forms up to this point, do I now need to do more forms to prompt the decree nisi or will the court get around to my case

Ok, good afternoon all! I was on here a while back, around September when everything started happening with my hopefully soon to be ex-wife! We agreed to separate last August, we were in rented property which was owned by my brother, we also have one 12 year old daughter together, anyway, initially I was staying in the house, sleeping on the settee, but it wasn't suitable, and I dignity wan

Solicitor has already said there would be no spousal maintenance expected as I don't earn enough, and she does have equivalent income via benefit etc You are probably right about the hook up thing, just as you can imagine it was a bit of a curve ball and knocked me sideways!!!

So another week has passed, and it just gets better, anyway, after some thinking etc, my brother (sensibly) has decided that he will not give notice etc now, if he did it would mean that they would need emergency accommodation around Xmas, and he isn't prepared to do that, and I agree, I wouldn't want that, he has agreed he will give notice in the new year and then she will move out around the st

Thanks AndyK, I got the free legal advice today, and he was very much in agreement with me, this whole situation apart from the divorce itself is more a case of general common sense, as there are no assets etc to divide up, and as our incomes are similar and modest then there is no spousal maintenance issues, just child maintenance issues, the debts because they are modest would go with us as ind

I have now got a solicitors appointment this week, I spoke to a few friends who have been through similar and they all recommended the same guy, so I am off there tomorrow, hopefully, by then I will have some firm legal advice on what is right and fair and how to go forward. I did speak to my brother yesterday about the house, and he has said that ultimately, he wants to help at the very least

Thanks AndyK, much appreciate your help, I do feel like you say she is using some emotion about the kids in this, but, in my opinion, the main thing she has an issue with is me staying on the house, after she has moved and relocated to a new area, to me that feels more like sour grapes and not wanting me to stay where I am, simple as that, she has already stated several times that she wants to mo

Thanks for the comments guys, she has been to her family the last couple of days, leaving the kids home here with me, while she 'sorted' some stuff out, she's just rung me about a couple of unrelated matters, but then I asked how she was getting on. Not sure where and who is giving her any advice, but she was definitely going to get some, she says she has now applied for various single person

Ok, well another 24 hours or so on, and a few developments, more in the sense of she has been around to members of my family to put her point across, citing me as the reason for the situation, however, as I would expect, they have taken the stance that it takes two to tango and ultimately we will both be to blame in some sense, I find it interesting that there are several important facts that she

Thanks Andyk, having spoken with her again this evening, she is now being extremely unreasonable, I have requested that it be dealt with amicably, despite how we feel about each other, I have said that ultimately, we were both complicit in our financial dealings regardless of her health, everything of great importance or spend was run past her, she just would always answer 'ok, whatever you say,
