Late Form E

(4 Posts)

My ex is over 2 weeks late filing form E and his solicitor ignored my email about it. I sent mine to the court on time.

I have emailed the court. Should I still file the chronology, questionnaire and statement of issues? Although there won't be much to say in the questionnaire, just I haven't received the form e.

My ex loves money more than anythng. He owns property but sent an email to me a few months ago saying that it is shared with his family. They live in another country and sadly live on the breadline.

Could a solicitor refuse to sign off a form e if it is clearly dodgy?

The solicitor doesn't have to sign off a form e. He just passes it on.

Presumably your ex husband can evidence who owns the properties - everything has to be evidenced, you can't just say stuff.

Even if it is shared with his family, you'll still be entitled to a portion of the bit he owns

I think the evidence issue is his problem, which is why he won't file form e. Maybe he did transfer shares but I would expect it to be within the last 3 years so clearly disposing of assets.

you can go to court and force him to complete his Form E. The judge will order him to.

You can't really do anything till then. A tip from me. Don't bother with solicitors or mediators. Just go straight to a court financial hearing. This man won't be fair. The judge will. You don't need a solicitor its just a process that needs to be followed.
