I am making a financial claim twenty years after my divorce. Does the chronology cover the time of marriage/seamless cohabiatation or the pried after the end of the marriage up to the application for a financial hearing?
I am wondering whether I have to put in the events, that in my mind, justify my claim, as it is so late? Or do I just present them at the Final Hearing if the case goes there?
The chronology would cover the period of seamless cohabitation onwards although there are other items which you would include for background such as dates of birth along with current age e.g.
20.05.1980 Applicant's date of birth (current age 40)
Have you received advice on your claim so long after divorce? Unless there are financial assets in joint names, notably property, you could do with some advice on your prospects of success in case you have no case.
We have no property in joint names. I left the marriage leaving money with m ex. I know vaguely what that was. He is now far far far better off than me. I put our children first and he was left free to pursue his career. I wasn't. That and the money I know I left him with is the basis of my claim. I wish I could afford legal advice. I have found a few cases where the judgement is in my favour. I was going to use these to support my claim. I also know my ex received payouts from the NCB, claims I supported because I helped him with chores after we were divorced. I didn't receive anything from them either. We were together his whole NCB career, either in a relationship, cohabiting or married. I am just trying to find cases that support my claim because as I said I can't afford legal advice, especially in current climate. I am self employed and have lost income
