My s2bX won't go to financial mediation(can't afford the fees), won't complete a financial statement for my solicitors.. what happens now?
He seems to think we can get divorced and he can bung me any money he sees fit.He is giving me some voluntary payments for the kids and the sale money from the house, but the rest has to be aggreed in court or by solicitors eh?Help?
Sadie is right - the Court, at the end of the day, has the power to make him complete a statement of his means or take the consequences.
mediation is not free, but in the majority of cases it works out cheaper than the alternative of going to Court. Can you perhaps persuade your x2b that the more you spend between you on lawyers, the less there is for you, and playing ducks and drakes and refusing to co-operate only complicates the process and indirectly benefits your lawyers.. If your hubby can't afford mediation, he won't be able to afford to go to Court either.
But of course, it takes two to make mediation work. If your hubby doesn't want to co-operate then you haven't much choice but to go to Court.
