Topic: Ex ignoring Mediation Petition
Written By: sjb1990 - 2 days ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Looks like that my gut feeling is correct that my "hopfully" soon to be ex is ignoring the invitation to mediation letter she's had this for 2 weeks now. (She did similar with her devorce petition.)I desperately want to get everything resolved asp, she knows this and to hurt me further she's dragging her heels on this on purpose. But what is the usual process for if someone fails to att

Pathetic, but its ok for you to take your kids and not let them see their dad. Surely a shared care parenting plan is best? You have your kids every mon Tues evening, their DAD, Wed and Thursday evening and you alternate Friday sat Sunday nights. Then the parents and children get to spend equal time with each other. Much better for the child. Change over happens with school. You and your ex never

So what your doing is stopping your child from seeing their dad? Just Incase he stops you from seeing your child. I'm sure its more common but look at it from your kids eyes!!! And both be responsible parents.

Thanks for your advice, I'll see what happens with mediation! Just seems unfair to me that those on benefits gets things for free while those who work don't! Especially in my case when the ex will benefit from a lump sum from our property in which she never fiancially contributed too.

Thanks could you provide me with a location of a list of what those exemptions are. I don't fancy paying for mediation if it can be avoided especially as it looks like she'll have hers free via legal aid whilst i pay for mine. Surely that's putting me at a disadvantage straight away

Thanks genesis it's good to know that I'm not the only one in this situation. But it is my understanding that all legal costs will be paid first then the division of assets will be split after if it goes to court. Obviously i may be incorrect. But it hasn't crossed my mind of her paying a penalty if you like due to her prolonging the case. And am interested in knowing what Mr Terry has to say on

My solicitor is saying basically that in order to go to court you had to attempt mediation first. My ex's solicitor is saying that there is basically no reason for me to withhold my details from them and they will simply forward it to me when theirs is ready. I know pretty well about her finances anyway except her outgoing for her new rented property. But i wonder what her reason is for not getti

Is it usual that a solicitor would refer us to mediation? This has come about because we have been trying to exchange our fiancial disclosure between each other however my ex hasn't got hers together yet we first set an proposed exchange date around September time. But for some reason my ex doesn't want to, and keep prolonging everything. I just feel like this whole exercise is a waste of money.

What plan do you think i have exactly? How can it be fair and reasonable for one parent looses every thing while the other gains everything just because shes a woman. A father can be a better parent you realise. I will always have my son no matters what even have sole custody if i have too. So what your saying is a child should be used by a woman to gain maximum fiancial gain from the man who

Thanks for that information. Also what happens if the same happens regarding finances? I'm hoping she pulls her weight and get things moving we both need to live separately now and know where we stand with money so we can both plan for the future for our son but she's just dragging her heals

Unreasonable behaviour, i have a letter from her solicitor saying she agrees to a divorce. That's fair enough but who pays for her to be personally served and what costs could this be?

Ive been adviced under no circumstances do not change the locks by solicitors, as this will go against you if it become a court battle basically. But you could do a sneaky I guess and change them anyway and say the key snapped and have a key ready to give her if she does return but I wouldn't change every lock.

I really can't see how this isnt fair shes brought nothing financially into the relationship. Our son will have 2 houses mine and her rented property. She'll end up with 15k in savings compared to my 10k less all legal fees and buying new furniture. And we'll share custody as equally as possible. However i want this marriage to work and be fixed most of all however her behaviour is unacceptabl

Shes already looking at moving out and renting her own place she doesn't want to stay living here where as i do. This will give our son a continuity of living in same home when hes living with myself. I put in a considerable amount of money in the property my deposit was 36k i paid for all stamp duty and other buying fees when we brought the property this is stated in the declaration of trust. I

May i add that we both see this as fair settlement due to the length of the marriage and the money i put into the home. Also we are both happy with the child arrangement. How would you make this fairer? Would you suggest splitting the equity differently?
