My bf has been separated from his wife for more than 6 years now. Last August 2011, he applied a divorce and was doing it as a sole applicant with service by post. After he submitted several required documents, the court scheduled for a hearing date on this 25/01/2012 but might be moved because they haven't received a reply from his wife.:( The lawyer will now ask the court to move back the hearing and apply for DISPENSATION OF SERVICE.

Has anyone here encountered the same problem in serving the divorce application? How long does the processing of dispensation of service usually takes? What would be the best thing he could do with regards to this matter?


Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

If they were separated for so long why the wait of 6 years before divorce.

Looks like yr lawyer is on the right track, just hang in there.
If not all well, then substitute service, by leaving with some-one responsible etc etc. may be likely subject to court approval.
