Lying on Form E

I am filling out my form E at the moment and it hurts like hell to declare money I had before marriage that my wife will claim. It feels like I'm being mugged, slowly, one square inch at a time :angry:.

My wife continues to lie to me about a payment she has had. She did a Form E a few weeks ago before she got the money and I suspect she will have left it off. Of course, I can get my sol to query it and I'll eventually see something declared.

Even if/when she declares it she is likely to lie.

What is the best thing to do if she lies? Is it best to sort it out before court or to theatrically flourish proof in front of a judge?
Has anyone had experience or know where I can get info?

By the way, you can never get rid of liars. Even when they die they are lying still.

Hiya jlg. It aint like perry mason thrusting new evidence under the judges nose haha. If only. Basically fill your form out with brutal honesty. If they find one lie its all lies so be brutally truthful.

When you get her form E U can go thru it and point stuff out to your sol and she can get disclosure on it and it will probably go into something called a questionair which is like a one sided conversation with no one in particular. Basically note everything U dont like and want more information on. Thats it really.

This dont seem to get looked at until FH anyway. I have not got that far. Its just a big talking shop before then. Chris

I agree with Chris. If your x2b has made statements in the form E with which you disagree, it's up to your solicitor to get at the truth. Telling lies is not a good idea, and it's even worse when the solicitor is not told and it all comes out during the course of the hearing.

This thread interests me... as I am nearly at the point where we exchange form e's....
My STBX has stated through his sol that he has 'lost approx 20K gambling'.... this, I am 110% sure is an attempt to 'hide' assets...
I am quite positive that he has infact given this money to his brother 'to keep' for him.... (he always told me that this is something he would do if anything ever happenend between us)....
Do I just voice my 'concerns' to my sol?
How would I go about 'proving' this I wonder?

I too would like to know what happens if questions asked arising from from E are not answered. Also if information is not provided that is asked for such as a CETV valuation.
