I know i should know this having receiced lots of advice before but i still need clarification. Bit slow on the uptake at times!!
FDR 26th june and self liting respondant. Have read the court procedures for bundle and read advice on this site. Have not received court order for bundle and as hearing is set for 30 mins it would appear one is not needed and applicant aught to anyway.
i have put together a file but am unsure if i need to replicate the answers given in form E and the questonaire or if i can refer to these documents on the day eg copies of credit card/bank and mortgage statements. I have copies of any offers and debates over the outsatanding questionnaire.
thanks for bearing with me in this especially as louise has been helpful in the past
You are NOT slow on the uptake at all, it just gets confusing at times!
It is, the applicant that has to file a bundle for the FDR and you should receive a copy of that bundle before the court date, (i think) but if you dont all that it is, is, all information you have received in the past in chronological order.
The reason i have said for you to make your own file is so that anything that you want to bring to the judges attention in your defence is with you at the time.The trouble with leaving it all to the other party is....they leave out the information that is not relevant to their client!
I.E..in our case they put a statement into court at the FDR written by the solicitor, in that statement he referred to my husband not doing this or that, and showed all letters he had written to my husband, what he failed to file were all the responses my husband had sent to them! This in our opinion is Fraud! (but i think they did this so if the issue of costs came up, you know, as in trying to say my husband hasnt done this and that in time frames ect so therefore he should be responsible for her costs)
I just want you to be covered for every eventuality that may rise. In other words i want you to protect yourself.
In their bundle they will or should file all the correspondance between both parties, i just want you to have a copy of ALL the documents to hand. If you want me to write a list of all relevant documents we put in our bundle then i will do, but if i remember rightly i have done that for someone else on here in a post.
Private message me if you want me too and i shall return your message ASAP.
