Please can anyone offer advice. I am in court next week for the first financial hearing, and also applying for spouse maintenance. My solicitor has not yet sent in a questionaire regarding my stbx form E, I wasnt asked by him to do an affidavit, although the court has asked me to send one in with my form E, which also went into court late. (Not due to any fault on my part) He hasnt sent in a statement of issues yet, or a chronology. Last Friday he sent me an email asking me to write some questions down, and what I thought of my stbx''s questions. I am now on legal aid and he is pushing me to settle asap. He is also telling me that he is instructing a barrister for the hearing as he has other court commitments even though he knew about the date in February. What would you advise me to do!! Thank you.
What sort of affidavit? They''re very rarely used in finance proceedings these days. He should really be advising on the questions, as well as seeking your input. You should really have a meeting with him to discuss the questionnaire properly.
