Barnesy. Drop me an email via the site. I'll help you with this, no charge.

Barnesy - difficult to know what to say in reply to that other than I hope you're OK mate. That's a really weird and horrible thing for her to do especially if you've been doing OK with the separ

That’s just a horrible, really sick thing to do.  Lost for words really. Stay strong lad.  

What Swan said. Try and do it yourselves if you're still communicating. Bit painful filling the forms in for the decree but better than paying someone to do it for you. Make sure you go to town on the reason for divorce. Ours got bounced first time around.

Do you mind me asking what you said that got knocked back?

 

Cheers for all the support. I'm basically OK at the moment, and drinking less than I was before I pulled the plug - which is better for my health and my bank balance

Sorry Kahnee, can't be a nice time for you.

Still, useful material for standup.

 

Probably want to swerve the "new thing you try this year" gag though.

 

Didn't go down well

And obviously, I'm sorry to hear about it.

I got mine on the basis we'd been separated for two years, it's as close as you get to a no fault divorce. Drinking less is good and is something I really wish I'd done when I separated from my ex, instead I got a mate who ran a pub to give me a room on the premises. That wasn't good. Look after yourself mate.

Went through this last Feb when I applied for a divorce, the actual divorce paper work is not too difficult.

So saved myself some money... but its the splitting of the assets which is costing me the solicitors fees as she

is being greedy.

 

In terms of myself ... it was the lowest point of my life.... Hit the drink for a month (I'm a Muslim, shows how bad it was)

Had a so called divorce month where I would get wasted 2/3 times a week

 

Picked myself up finally and a year later, I am with a new partner and the world is right again...

Bloody hell, Kahnee. Hope you are ok.

 

PM me if you want some insipid, cliched and, quite possibly, inappropriate advice.

ditto

s*** news mate.

 

Not sure if process different in NI than to the mainland but my experience was to engage a solicitor who in turn engaged a brief. High Court job.

 

In short there was no dispute over access to the kids and in turn I signed over the house and paid over the odds each month than what my solicitor said he could wangle, I guess I did so because I was the one 'at fault'.Child Support Agency not involved. Judge at High Court was very impressed. Think the process took around 6 months (?) and cost me around £1500 - about 12/13 years ago.

 

If you feel you have both reached the point of no return then have it sorted.

 

BTW just finished John Bishop's book (6/10) and he sang the praises of Relate. Not sure if you would try that route but he thought them worthwhile.

Yeah, she's mentioned the two-year wait. Not keen. Want it sorted while we still don't hate each other.

 

And cheer's for the ditto's Molby :)

Sorry to hear that mate - good luck with it all.

 

I would recommend relate or similar even if the two of you separating is foregone conclusion, a few friends have done similar and it really helped keep things amicable while working through the divorce process.

You had the room in the oakie before I moved in there, on leaving the other half :)

 

Kahnee, I hope you didn't do what I did, made the decision, told her I was leaving, walked out with my bags packed to drive round the corner to the oakie. Got halfway up the road and realized I had left my suit jackets in the house.............boy was it fun when I went back in for them :thumbs:

This is Kahnee, that shouldn't be an issue.

As soon as I read the Hero 6 review on Unsalted Popcorn I knew something like this would happen. How anybody could not love that film is beyond me.

Sorry to hear you've been suffering from concussion

Or have you started drinking at breakfast time again?

 

IT MADE A CHILD CRY!!!!!!
