Like all of us on this post, I am at my wits end!
My exh and I should have exchanged form E on 24th May and I have still not received his, nor is his solicitor communicating with my legal team. Each day that goes by makes me more anxious, I am unable to eat or sleep. He stopped paying SM 4 months ago and with rapidly dwindling savings, I will only be able to keep paying my mortgage for a few months.
I know this is a plan made by he and OW to force me to default, leading to repossession. OW has told me "we will destroy you"!
I find it difficult to comprehend how they continue to flout court orders and get away with it. He lied through-out the divorce and is going to do so again and there is nothing I can do about it.
Try to stay strong folks, at least we know we are not alone in this dreadful situation. Big hugs to you. xx
I have received a letter from Court today that STBX has not filed his form E with them either. Can I ask them to postpone First Appointment date to give me time to complete questionnaire in case I receive it very late, or can I have date deferred at last minute?
We are in the same boat here and It has caused me great anxiety so I will tell you the advice I have received. I am now calmer.
Less than a week to go, no form E from ex, mine like yours was filed into court at the correct time.
So, go to court, you could prepare your letter now and send it to court or wait a bit longer (about a week before your hearing date) Explain to court that you have not received your stbx''s form E and feel that his behaviour has put you under pressure and disadvantaged you as you have not had the opportunity to compile your questionnaire or receive the replies and you ask the court for guidance in the matter.
Judges take a poor view of persons not complying with the timetable set out by court and if for any reason he fails to send his form E or it is incomplete, the DJ will order him to do it.
If he continues in this way, you could possibly ask for a costs order against him.
How late should I leave it before telling court that I still haven''t received it? How late can he be before he will get a penal notice? I''ve already been awarded costs for the actual divorce process but have paid for all the letters my previous sol sent to try to get him to send his form E.
