Topic: Re: Financial settlement
Written By: ch - 8 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Hi, as I have never received the divorce fees that the court awarded me, could I if necessary, suggest these costs are offset against any costs that may be claimed against me?

Hi, thanks for the advice although I do not, nor do I intend to, argue with anyone - life's too short!

No I sent it a week before it was actually recorded & then the court sent out a letter the next day. All the details are recorded at the court and the list has been sent to me confirming this.

Hi, yes although I cannot be responsible for the court sending the documents to my ex-solicitor! I just thought this was worth posting as others may find it helpful to know that you can ask the court administration team questions, they will answer and the answer can verify that documents were not sent to you. Personally I may have been charged the court fees for nonattendance but now I can ve

Positive feedback: I asked the court for a list of all documents filed and sent in relation to the case and they have provided a long list showing the date the form was filed from me stating that I no longer had a solicitor acting for me and the very next day the court sent the hearing date letter to that very same solicitor! Thankfully this shows that I was not informed of the hearing and that
Topic: Trial chronology
Written By: ch - 8 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
The applicants solicitor has sent me a copy of 'Trial Chronology' for the final financial hearing. My question is what should this include as it seems selective is our dob, respective adult children's name & dob, date 'wed' (unusual term to use?) Then the two previous hearing dates and that is it: should the date of separation & divorce be included and anythingbelse? Does only the app

Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you for your feedback although I understood these pages to be as a 'guide' to help those going through a difficult process and not a forum to 'tell someone off' who is just trying to help? I am not a law student and it took me ages to find some guidance on what a court may consider short/long/marriage and so I thought I would share this. Of course if you are married for a short time but

Topic: Advice please re: Settlement discussions prior to final hearing
Written By: ch - 8 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
The final hearing is set, my ex, the applicant, has not put forward any settlement suggestions in any format although I have, by telephone, to his solicitor. I do not have a solicitor. Do I have to put any suggestions to his solicitor rather than him directly as I am not sure the solicitor is passing on my suggestions to him? Could I e.mail him a suggestion and would I simply list the sugg
Topic: Definition of Long/short/med length marriage
Written By: ch - 9 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
HI Could anyone answer the question of what is considered a short, medium length or long marriage Please? And what implications would the length of marriage have on sharing assets? ALSO are pre-marital assets considered the same if accrued prior to the short/medium/long marriage? Would the length of separation count as 'not married' before the divorce is finalised particularly if one
Topic: Re: Ancillary Relief
Written By: ch - 9 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Your story sounds very similar to mine: my solicitor and ex not moving the divorce and financial settlement forward and I am now separated over 4 years, divorced for 14 months and still waiting for a court hearing to settle the finances. Of course in all this time my pension has increased and I now find that my ex-husband wants half of my pension as, it appears, he has not paid into a fund since
Topic: Financial settlement
Written By: ch - 9 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
I found out today that the court did not advise me of the ancillary relief hearing and so I missed it: I have lodged a complaint to the court but now am worried that I will not be able to have a more 'informal' hearing and we now move to the Financial Dispute Resolution hearing. I do not have a solicitor: I could no longer afford one and when I did I found that they were costing a lot of money f
