Hi, I feel that my wife will do her best to sabotage Clear Break i''m seeking, and may ignore the court appointments.
What are the consequences of her not attending FDA and FDR?
Also my case is fairly simple (no children, no pension, no house) and I''m planing to self represent, what are the costs if (in the worst case scenario) I go all the way and get a financial court order?
The court order attendance, if one person refuses a judge would usually make a specific order to attend, called a penal notice, refusal after that can mean prison.
However when there is nothing to share a judge may just choose to skip FDR and have the final hearing, s/he can`t give you an order is the other does not disclose or attend, what the judge can do though is refuse a future application by the person refusing to comply, which is just as good really.
I have just got my order for a final hearing where the judge has stated that a the court may make a final order if the party does not attend. The judge knows no form E has been served or filed by the other party.
So not sure what will happen there then????
He did attend the second FA but with no paperwork even with a penal notice attached to the first order from first FA. Judge gave me the option of imprisioning him but I declined (what would that achieve not vindictive just want this over with) then because I asked about the paperwork and ex didn''t give a satifactory answer jusge told him he didn''t care if he filed form E or not and a decsion would be made with or without it so......????
The next one should be interesting!!!
