consent order (from 2014 not typo ) to be set aside due to ex-hub non disclosure. Listed for hearing early Feb but narcissistic ex hub sacked his existing sol just before Xmas. New sol cant act due to having no papers as ex hub hasnt paid legal fees of original sol. Ex now acting for himself at mo (as confirmed by new sol). Therefore can my sol still insist he appears before Judge at agreed date and not apply for a postponement/adjournment before scheduled Court appearance in two weeks.?
He would need to attend. However, if he applies for an adjournemnt the Juge would have to consider whethre it was appropriate to grant it, taking into account the over-riding aim of havng a fair hearing.
Your solicitor will be best placed to advise you. if your ex applies ahead of time for an adjounment it may be that it would be sensible to agree this, if the case can be relisted fairly quickly.
Therein lies the problem - the Court already rescheduled hearing from Nov last year due to their mistake over Judge availability and Feb earliest date all parties available. Ex hub now 4 months in arrears on maintenance just unilaterally stopped paying. cant help feeling its all a game plan of his. My costs spiralling as a result.
