Question
QUESTION: Hi, My ex-wife filed for divorce over 18 months ago. I received the Divorce papers from the Court over 18 months ago. I accepted the Divorced due to 5 year separation and signed on the dotted line an sent back the divorce papers.

I have still not had any confirmation from the Courts if we are officially divorced or not.

I want to write a letter to the courts regarding this matter. How do I word it?

Please advise.
Thank you.

ANSWER: Craig:
DISCLAIMER:  I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY: I am someone with experience with Family law matters, and can give some directions of what I would do but these are my opinions: I strongly recommend that you get an ATTORNEY who specializes in family law in your immediate county/country.

Usually it is six months grace period: You can contact the County Court Office to determine if your case has been completed, and filed: You can also pick up copies of the final order.

What State/County was your case heard in?  Send me the information, and I will try to get you where to send a letter, and what to say, OK.

Hope this helps,
Jeff

Thanks for writing back: However, this will take a bit of time because I am not familiar with UK laws or court system: I do have a friend who is and is living in UK now so I will contact them and make an inquiry.

Let me do some research and get back to you asap.

Hope this helps
