In financial proceedings a chronology is a simple document to give the judge a brief outline of some of the detail he needs. It would need:
The DOB of the parties and children
The date of cohabitation if you argue seemless cohab to marriage
The date of marriage
The date of separation
The date of the petition
The date of the nisi
The date of the Forms E
The date of the FDA
You then later add any other dates relevant to the proceedings
The best thing is to keep it simple with bullet points identifying all the key events in chronological order. The aim is to provide a summary which focuses on the history and significant events to your case.
Seems you are self-repping which will save you loads of money in admin - a bit time consuming but if your ex has a solicitor all the better. I say this because although some documents/statements etc are meant to be \"exchanged\" at the same time, if there is a day lapse you can wait for the \"other sides\" to arrive in the post to you and provided you have the info (as the divorcelawyer set out) you can copy the format from his solicitor's - I don't think the court cares as long as all the info is there.
What stage are you at? After the FDR? Have you exchanged questionnaires yet?
Keep it up - you'll feel like you've done a degree in law at the end of it if it gets to a Final Hearing but boy you'll learn a lot and save money to boot!
