My divorce petition has been returned for some corrections because my name was spelt incorrectly on the marriage certificate. One letter is incorrect, they are asking me to clarify it. How do I do that? By a covering letter or a note on the form? Also as I'm applying on the grounds of two years separation I need to confirm in the statement of case that the respondant consents to this. How do I do that? Does H have to put his signature there or does he write in the form? Many thanks for your advise.
I had this once for a client. I said in the petition "mrs Smith (incorrectly referred to in the marriage certificate as Mrs Smythe) and that did the trick. Send in your birth certificate and passport. If that doesn't do the trick you'll have to amend the petition as I suggest. One step at a time though.
You're not asked to prove in the petition that he consents, merely state that he does. The court will ask for his consent when he is served. I presume that you already know that he does consent, and you're not just keeping your fingers crossed.
Oh thank you Collaborate, that really helps. He is consenting, I just wasn't sure how to confirm this on the form......so I just write that myself. I take it copies of my birth certificate and passport are ok?
