    My husband I have been seperated for over 2 years due to infidelity on his part. We were married for 4 years but together 13 and have a 9yo son.

    I moved out of the family home 6 weeks after split with our child as I couldnt afford to live there as a stay at home mum. I moved into an unfurnished private rental place which I had to pay to furnish from savings and catalogues leaving me in debt and having to claim benefits. I’ve recently had to take out an IVA as I cant afford repayments on catalogues and credit cards.

    As a result of my financial situation I have had to let my husband file for the divorce as I couldnt afford the fees or a solicitor. The decree Nisi came through a few months ago but  we need to get a consent order before we can get the final divorce. My ex is really dragging it out as he does not feel that he should have to pay me is there anything I can do to speed it up? I cant afford a lawyer, cant get a loan due to IVA and have noone that can lend me money.
