If an application is made to court, it is the court and not you he has to answer to.
If he does not engage with the process he could have costs awarded against him or even go to jail!
Given the size of the assets pot you need to give serious thoughts to the costs involved in being fully represented. I would encourage you to complete the Form E yourself and if he does complete his, use the information to put together an offer to settle. If you can reach agreement you can get a consent order drawn up and signed off at the first hearing.
Thank you for reply
I sent my form e back months ago,June to be precise. My solicitors have now sent one last request for his form e orhwerwiae they will go to court for a consent order to be made . I also have to make a new claim for legal aid due to now being in receipt of universal tax credit to top up my wages so hopefully I will GWR that help. I have got to decree nisi but the solicitor has held off [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] until finances are sorted which means the absolute date if Dec 9th may not be feasible. I am about ready to say to hell with pension but my solicitors have said he has offered half and I need to let the process go on until they get his form e so the whole kit and caboidle can be done in one hit. If he doesn't comply with the consent order what happens next ??....
