How to reply to a divorce petition

The "respondent", the person who has been sent a divorce or separation petition, should arrange their own legal representation. An expert divorce solicitor in Windsor will review the petition and can help the respondent to plan and send their response in the correct manner.

What is a draft petition?

Guidelines recommend that a respondent is sent a "draft" version of a divorce petition first. The draft version can then be discussed and agreed by both parties before a final version is filed with the Court. The sending of a draft version is not a formal requirement. The proceedings can proceed more easily, and at less cost, however, if an early agreement is reached.

Are the contents of the petition correct?

Whether you have received a Court-filed petition or a draft version, it is very important that the contents be checked. In addition to the personal details listed in the petition, the "Statements of Case" should be reviewed thoroughly.

You can write to your partner or their lawyer to request a correction, if you disagree with the Statements of Case . Alternatively, you can "defend" the petition by filing an Answer and Cross-Petition. Your legal representative can assist with the formal process of defending a petition if necessary.

Divorce Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know how much maintenance to pay?

The parents' income and the number of children are some of the factors considered when calculating maintenance payments. The Child Maintenance Service offer an online calculator to work out these payments.

What happens if one (or both) of us have assets overseas?

If an informal agreement cannot be reached, a UK Court decision can be very difficult to enforce in some countries, so the impact of this on foreign assets should be considered from the outset. Obtaining a divorce in another jurisdiction may be a more suitable choice.

How much does the divorce cost ?

Court fees are £550 and legal costs involved run from about £165 to £290 (per hour).
