Have just read that there is a new section on form E that relates to cohabiting. My ex lives with his s..g (moved in to her house)but keeps a postal address - he is a lawyer so presumably this is to make financial settlement less favourable to me.
I have a form E from him although am waiting for missing info. Can I ask for the new section to be declared as well? The s..g is also a lawyer so their joint income is way in excess of mine.
I am waiting to hear when my Nisi is to be read in court so not at the financial stage yet but this could make a difference to me!
I found out from my stbx''s Acknowledgement of Service form that he is now living with the OW. If her income has to be daclared on this new form that puts their joint income at close to £100k with no commitments and leaves me on benefits with 2 children under 5.
This could be very interesting indeed and I have a feeling that stbx will hit the roof when he sees the forms!!
Falling you don`t need the Nisi to begin financial proceedings.
form E has always asked about cohabitation and remarriage the new form just asks a bit more, of course you can just write unknown, courts rarely force the issue, so don`t get too excited.
Often people write on wiki don`t move out of the FMH or your housing needs will be met, thats not the case, where do they live with who and for how long are all considerations for the judge.
If you move back in with your parents your housing needs are not met, if you have a one bed flat and you have three kids the need is not met, if you move in with a new partner and you`ve only lived there a few months the need is not met.
As often with family law its not black and white but shades of grey.
