My solicitor lost my divorce papers with my personal details

Postby bettyboo10 » Tue Jan 15, 2019 9:41 pm

My divorce from a violent man was granted by the courts on the 19th December 2018, although 'I have never seen these papers as despite the solicitor telling me she had sent them to me 7th January, they are nowhere in sight and the post office claim that they were never in their system. This has had a real psychological impact upon my as my legal documents have just gone with my personal data on them from my solicitors hands.

Can anyone tell me if this has ever happened to them as I am in disbelief. It has taken 8 months for a non contested divorce and cost me £3000 and now 'I don't even have the divorce papers. The solicitor is saying that she has to send up for them again, probably another month and more costs.

I cannot believe it

Okay, yes it is bad. Maybe they are floating around int he post Christmas day stuff. Larger packages take longer. The actual papers can also be retrieved through the system.

Right now I can guess how you feel, but in a few months it will be just another one of those hiccups you have overcome. You have come so far, don't let it drag you down too much. You are worth more than that.

Hi
As you said, thankfully they turned up, late, but they turned up, not sure what happened with them but at least I finally got them.

I am glad they did. One less thing to suck the oxygen out of the room.

Take care
