Go to the leagal aid &  get things started he will not do it as he knows the he will have to pay maintanance for you &  the two children

If he said he wants a divorce &  he did not do it the i think that he knows when he goes to the attorney he will have to settle for Maintance so dont wait &  get legal advice as soon as possible so that you know what you can expect

Hope this will help

To HW are your refferin to costs for the lawyer to get the divorce done?

Pls sum1 help here...

Maybe because he could claim the costs from you as the plaintiff? Or maybe he doesn''t actually want a divorce - all words, no action?
