Hello, I was separated under the same roof for 6 months, tried to reconcile, separated again for 3 months than I moved out. Filed for divorce in August 2014, divorce was granted in October, than contested by my husband in Nov. (Contesting date of separation.) I went overseas, divorce got adjourned twice, then by the court I was given the option to go ahead with the defended hearing or to withdraw my divorce application, re-apply and than I will be granted an uncontested divorce. By the time I withdrew my application, a parenting order case was filed and I am told by a legal adviser that I have to wait for parenting matter to conclude before I can file for divorce. Is there a way around this? I thought divorce and parenting are two different family law matters?
