I fully completed my form E a year ago, but as we are now going to court so that spouse will have to reveal his, am I correct in assuming all my bank statements etc need to be up to date as at today? My Form E has already been submitted to spouse''s solicitor, but as we have had a long delay and I am now acting for myself as my solicitor seemed to be getting nowhere and I couldn''t afford her fees to take him to court.
Having just read the Financial Order leaflet, do I have to attend a mediation meeting, given that spouse is 700 miles away and not replying to any letters my ex-solicitor sent. Would I be excused?
Thank you very much. I spoke to a local mediation office today and I''ve got an appt next Tuesday, but I''ve explained the circumstances so she agrees mediation is unlikely to work in my circumstances so I''ve got 1/2 hour for assessment, then she will sign the form to be sent to the court with Form A. I will start to collect all my bank and savings statements soon.
Have received my first court date six weeks from now, so presumably the best bet is to do a completely new Form E. Is that all I will need for now? I may make a start on all the other forms as well though.
