Divorce financial settlement - chasing ex's solicitor

Id politely requested a response from my ex wife's solicitor by 24th May to my letter, which was a month after they had received it. Coming up to three weeks on, is it OK to email the solicitor asking for an update?

    Are you using a solicitor yourself?

    No, representing myself.

    It's okay to, of course.  Whether or not they'll respond quickly is up to them.  Sounds like they're dragging their feet a little but I've know previous solicitors of mine (rubbish ones) that can take over two weeks just to open the letter in their in tray.
