So, judgement returned yesterday, fixed capital lump sum from sale of FMH, spousal maintenance joint lives global. Amazing, unbelievable!
Stbx barrister today sends judge a corrections/ revisions order for clarification, essentially telling the judge he''s got it wrong and asking him to revisit and change the order to suit him.
Is this for real? What are the costs implications of this tomfoolery?
My solicitor is away until week after next and I am left in the dark
Any advice great fully received
Hi Tink, well at least you got your judgement,congrats you don''t say fixed lump sum to whom etc? But I guess that isn''t really relevent in answering your post
Is the judgement different to what the judge said at the FH or was judgement not given and you both notified by post? If it is just a typo error in the judgment then it can be ammended under the slip rule. But if your stbx is saying they don''t like it or it is flawed then they have to appeal, they can''t just ask for it to be ammended. There is a certain procedure to follow and your stbx barrister will know this.
So I guess it depends under which circumstance they are saying it wrong for, typo, or the judgment itself. They would also need to ask for the transcript if they were going to appeal it.
Just sit tight and wait for your solictor to come back, would be my suggestion
Apparently this is the draft judgement. Not just typo corrections, but further submissions essentially telling the judge he''s got it wrong! Also pleading poverty and saying maintenance is unaffordable!
I understand that if this is the case he will need to formally appeal, and suspect this is a ploy to further drain joint assets and leave me with nothing!
Any advice please?
