FDR Hearing was created by Debbiecam
We have recently been told our FDR hearing will be in April. However was instructed to send in Narrative Statement, plus any debts that were made in the marriage. And provide proof of payments made and by whom since the split. I have complied however the ex has not, with no offer of explanation. I have also discovered that his emigrating to Italy, I dont have a date but i believe it’s imminent. What effect will this have on our FDR hearing? And is it worth me notifying the court? We are both litigant in person.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Kind regards
Debbie

I am not fully sure, but I would suggest that you keep the process rolling forwards even in his absence, if he doesn't turn up to put his case then I would assume the judge will advise soon what is happening or can be done next and how. Don't let him stall the process by disappearing, I am sure the courts have dealt with it before and will be able to deal with it. I cannot see that being deliberately absent is likely to better his outcome.

Ok thank you. Yes I've just discovered he has gone.
My main concern is Ive been told I'm to lead the bundles (not sure how to do this) so plan on seeking legal advice for this matter. I'm wondering if he will even bother to provide me with his evidence and what action the court will do if he ignores the process he is meant to take.

If you need support with stuff like bundles etc, it is worth giving the helpline a call.

Bundles need to follow practice direction 27a.

He needs to be sent an index so he can ask for particular inclusions before the bundle is finalised.

I know for certain that the ex has lied to me and the courts. I have evidence to show that he has lied, Do i have to include my evidence in the bundle or can i wait til the final hearing?
