My ex ( soon to be) told the judge that the many hundreds of thousands he spent last year on a net income of less than a third was met from paying his tax Gross and £17,000 of savings. We have no savings - I have the bank statements and e-mails from his lawyers that corroborate - even Form H and Form E state the accounts are ZERO. He only owes a tiny amount to HMRC from the 1 invoice I saw-2 months ago- he said the tax was deferred and non payment of tax was a passive in action-not producing documentation???nHe fails to corroborate all his fabrications.
I want to request a transcription of the hearing and prosecute for perjury - there are false bank statements , I have letters from bank managers stating as such.
Any advice? Have been LiP for a year but he claims poverty but still pays for a £396.00 an hour lawyer.
Have a FH in May but cannot afford barrister or lawyer to prepare my allegations.
Just signed up for Divorce Consultant service. But any advice re perjury would be great. Can I do I do it myself?
He may well have been economical with the truth but my advice would be to focus on preparing a clear and cogent case for final hearing rather than expending time and energy on an attempt to prosecute for perjury.
If you are able to put together a clear s25 statement showing evidence of his income and assets and casting doubt on his claims, this will help your case. There will be an opportunity to cross examine his evidence in court. This needs to be approached in a cool and clinical way.
If the judge at FH believes he has lied to the court, it will be open to them to report him for perjury.
