I am currently doing a DIY divorce and dealing directly with the courts myself. My husband refused to sign the Acknowledgment of Service so I have just had to pay for a court bailiff to serve the papers on him in camp. It is likely that he will ignore this however, so I will have to apply for special procedure to obtain my decree nisi. I am unable to speak with the bailiff, and i am getting conflicting info from the net as to what period of time my husband gets in order to respond before I can apply to move to the next stage. Some sites say 29 days, others say 8 and it's bloody confusing me. For the record, there are no children to sort out, no propert issues (as we were in MQ & I have already moved out) and I am not claiming anything from him financially. Has anyone here undertaken a DIY divorce before? If so, could you throw any light on this for me cos it's p1ssing me reet off?
