Quick overview of an FDA that happened a few weeks ago for those heading to one and might find it useful.
A argued against sharing costs of asset/pension valuations, which was dismissed. R argued that very significant assets were missed off A's form E and should be disclosed, but the Judge decided they weren't relevant in any way and dismissed the related Questions from the questionairre. Judge then decided that R must value assets which have very minimal value (some £0) and therefore weren't on Form E. So all in all, there wasn't any consistency!
One party also clearly had someone in the room with them (remote hearing) but the judge didn't give anyone a chance to object, which was also odd.
