I've been going though the divorce from hell, which is the same story for a lot of us I guess, and I've got the final financial settlement hearing coming up in a couple of weeks. I've already submitted my bundle with my form E at the last hearing, and the final order has 3 points as follows.
1 to provide a contact number
2 no later than 3 clear days before the hearing the applicant(her) must file and serve a searchable bundle in a single email.
3 The applicant must send to the court by 11 a.m on the last working day before the hearing a schedule of assets and liabilities in revisable EXCEL format and a position statement. The respondent(me) may also comply with this direction by the same time.
Firstly, its the same judge who dealt with the family court re my kids and he was also the judge at the first financial hearing as well. Family court he called me a liar when I told him a Police officer had falsified evidence against me,and who is now going through the misconduct process at work, but at the financial hearing he had already seen the bundle I sent with the ex's bad behaviour, off which there is a lot, and which left me £35,000 in debt, and no assets whatsoever apart from my pension.I asked for recompense for her actions as I've been told I can sue her for up to £50,000, but he said he didn't have the power to do so in his court.
Secondly, from the order from reading it I only have to do points 1 and 3, if I,ve read it right.
Thirdly, when she emptied the house, and destroyed or took all my belongings (long story, but she took out a non mol on me to get legal aid, and I was banned from my own house for 12 months) I emailed her solicitor because I;d been told that the contents of the house were part of the financial settlement and she rescinded on that agreement, Her solicitor then replied that it would all be sorted out at the financial settlement, but she has no assets and like me is in debt, but from gambling, not from the financial abuse I received from her.
She is looking to have half of my pension, which I'm fighting as I have 12 years of pension contributions before I even met her, but with regards to the contents of the house, would there be any point in asking for a bigger percentage of the pension for me, as its the only asset and what her solicitor said re the house contents that would be sorted out at the financial settlement.
