Hi wikipeeps. Hope some one may be able to answer my Question.
My STBX solicitor has just served the following documents for the First Appointment on 23RD January. ( not really Late)
In his letter he states that he has prepared a bungle of documents for the hearing and that he has enclosed a copy of the bungle herewith.
Is the bundle the Questionnaire, Chronology, statement of issues , Form G, Form H. Or would it be something different. Should I be going back to and asking for the copy as not enclosed.
I have just received the post and have received a lever arch file with all the documents That have been sent to the court his and mine, I hate to think what that has just cost my STBX.
Do I have to take that whole file to the court I assumed that I would only need the questionnaire and statement of issues etc. not copies of form E and bank statements etc..
Ps. I have done the form g and sent to the court that I was awaiting further information and they have done the same. The only thing I haven't done is The Form H but I thought that was to handed in on the day but they have done theirs.
Take it with you. Express bemusement if the opportunity arises. Expect the judge to be irritated that costs have been expended on the unnecessary production of a bundle.
It is a good idea to have your own file with all the documents at this stage. It is worth having it with you. Make a point of not using theirs!
Remember on form H you can put down any legal fees you have incurred as well as £19/hr for your time as LIP.
Wow, I had no idea of that I could charge for my time , thanks Hadenoughnow. I had no intention of using their file as my file has all my notes on the bank statement. How many hours would you consider to be acceptable in reality I have spent days dealing with them . One of the biggest issues is his pension that he had. I have asked for copies of CETV values to 4 Pensions that he had in 2015 at which time he now say that he consolidated them into one and it has only a CETV 38k. I have been asking for the transfer papers to prove this but he ignores me. this has been going on since 2015 at mediation and I do have emails to that effect. I have requested them again in the questionnaire, I even wrote to his solicitor in April to August 4 times requesting them so we might be able to come to some agreement out of court
