My wife and I cohabited for 1.5 years and was married for less than one year.
She is now requesting I do a form E. Is there any point of doing this? it was a VERY short marriage, there are no children, no pets, no assets (apart from our house), we contributed equally at the beginning.
I can't imagine my solicitor would be confident in advising me whats a good settlement offer if she thought viewing the figures would be necessary?

If the idea is to try to reach a voluntary settlement most people can normally summarise their financial position on one sheet of paper. Subject to any necessary confirmation such a copy payslips or whatever that should be sufficient to establish whether agreement can be reached voluntarily. Form E is better kept for the court process for which it is designed.
