Hi would like to ask your opinions
If one side has not given any disclosure will the judge allow for a FH to go ahead and will they make a decision based on the facts presented from one side? Or will they adjourn?
I think Last judge at adjourned FA ordered for it to go straight to FH without disclosure from other side (this is what he said but am awaiting the oreder to confirm).
If judge orders what I have asked for I would be happy for a judgement to be made without disclosure from other party.
I know it is hard to predict what any perticular judge will do but any feed back would be appreciated.
It is possible for a judge to make an order if the other side fails to comply with Directions but judge''s do not like to make orders that can easily be appealed in which case an adjournment is likely.
It may be the case that your financial assets are straightforward and of low value. If this is the case, an order made without input from your spouse would not easily be appealed in which case you may get what you are seeking.
It is a quite straightforward I think that is why the last two judges have said it would go ahead with or without him.
Lets hope so just want this all done with.
Waiting for Directions on trial bundle :? but judge just told me to do my best. Not sure what needs to go in it though?
The trial bundle is for both parties'' documents to go into. If you only have your own documents, those are the documents that go in - such that you wish to rely upon them.
On the grounds that you appear to be seeking an order without input from your spouse you will effectively say to the court:
"these are the matrimonial assets, these are the assets I hold and these are the assets my spouse holds/held; my income is £a and I assume my spouse''s income is £b; I need £x and Y assets from the settlement and my spouse needs £z or nothing.
Here are my papers proving my current position and the order I would like is [order].
Thanks very much judge, see you in the pub for a cheeky pint after the hearing?"
Did a sort of statement of issues and skeleton argurment for the last appointment as wasnt sure wether it was going to be classed as a final but ex turned up with nothing so... I will just regig and add what I do know and reasons why
Thanks muchly xx
