This is my first post so I hope to cover everything.. forgive me if I do not. Also I have checked the rest of the forum and nothing seems to answer my specific questions.
Anyway here goes..
I have recently applied for a divorce after being separated from my husband for over 5 years. I decided to do it DIY as the circs seem quite straight forward.. ie marital home sold in 2002 (with profits equally split) since which we have lived separate and our daughter is now over 18 years old. Both my ex and myself now own homes we now share with new partners.
However, my ex has went to a solicitor as he has came into some money. The sol has requested a Clean Break Order and has sent me form D81 Statement of Information for a Consent Order requesting an informal exchange of financial disclosure.
As I wish to keep the costs down, can I fill this form in myself stating that I do not now or ever wish to claim against my ex's assets or pension?
Or alternatively do I have to fill this form in at all as I feel I shouldnt have to give my financial situation to his sols to protect what is ultimately his assets?
Hi Linnie, I'm afraid I won't be much help to you but just to let you know I am about to get into the same situation. Living apart for 5 years and now he wants his half of the house (quietly, without solicitors) so I will be very interested in your replies.
