Hi,
I have a substantive hearing in a week and a half. Ex was due to file statement in response to mine three weeks ago and has not. There is a history of non compliance so it''s not a surprise but is their any risk the judge will postpone and reschedule the hearing if she does not file? We are both self repping.

Hi,
yes there is a risk of that happening, especially if the Ex has a ready made excuse such as illness, etc.
Are you able to contact them to chase it up? Preferably in a written medium such as email so that you can keep a record of their response as this may be able to be used by you in court....

Yes, have already done that. Multiple attempts to contact through multiple routes. No response. I was considering writing to the judge but not sure how that would be viewed.

I would write a letter in neutral terms just bringing it to the Court''s attention.
To be fair though my ex hardly bothered doing any paperwork at all, certainly none within the time limits set, and it mattered very little to the judge I''m afraid....
