I recently sent a Consent Order to my ex-wife's sols for her to sign - they approved it but asked for reference to "full and frank disclosure" to be removed as we were only using D81s and not form Es (they said that F+F disclosure needed form Es).
This amendment was made (the sentance removed from the order) and the amended order was sent to the court through my team.
The *sealed* order I have received again makes reference to "full and frank disclosure" and I queried this with my team - I was told that the judge had asked for this amendment to be made and that it wasn't a problem.
I've now received a letter from the ex's sols saying I filed an old version of the order and that my behaviour would be reported to the court and they would claim costs etc etc
We haven't entered the Ancillary Relief process at all - so no first hearing or fdr etc - it was all done with a form a" for dismissal.
Anyone know where I stand, and can/does a judge frequently do this? Will obviously speak to them on monday but looking for some reassurance if appropriate!
I have no idea what a D81 is but nevertheless.........do you have a copy of the amended order you sent to court? i.e. the one with the sentence removed? Do you know the Judges name that put the sentence back into the order? if so then all you have to do is write a letter back to her solicitor pointing this out.
i.e...please find enclosed a copy of the original order that was sent to the courts, as you can see i left the sentence out and it was Judge blah blah who put the sentence back into the order. My behaviour has been impeccable throughout blah blah blah.
If you have done nothing wrong then please dont be afraid of solicitors bullying tactics, they will threaten you with allsorts, even when they actually know the truth sometimes.
As for Judges, they do what they want to do, whatever they feel is right, is it upto you to question the judge on the decision to put back the sentence? No its down to the other side, tell them in a letter that if they have any concerns then please feel free to contact the judge!
Hope this reassures you somewhat and you can chill out for the weekend ! Letters always seem to come on a Friday, im sure half of them do it so it ruins your weekend! lol
LOL..... tell me about it! i.e your offended with the tone of their letter?, you wouldnt believe some of the things my partners ex solicitors have sent us....all i can say is...........they are foul!
When we first starting receiving letters from them some (nearly) 3 years ago!!! i got really offended with the things they accused us of, i used to rant and rave and think of all the things i could do....who could i report them too ect ect, NOW??? i just take them on the chin and laugh at the letters and store them up, ready to take them on after its all over, as once all this divorce stuff is over for us, what will we talk about??? So i decided i will complain to whoever and start the ball rolling, i decided i am going to write to MP s, judicial board, anyone really just to give me something to do! lol and hopefully make sure they cant do it to anyone else. Some people get really scared when it comes to dealing with solicitors, they see them as some sort of untouchables,that they know the law blah blah, well they dont, they have to look up the Law in their little books just like we can do.
So have a brilliant weekend, and laugh in their faces, (well dont actually laugh in their faces) at the moment until its all sorted for you! But i would like to see their faces when they realsie the Judge ordered it!! hahhah
