I submitted the above documents as per the date specified on the notice of first appointment to the court/wife/mckenzie friend
I have received none of these documents from the Applicant my wife back, the deadline set by the court has now passed
what should I do now as these are needed for the First Appointment?
Any advice would be really welcomed thanks CT

Drop the other side a note asking them to confirm that they have no questions to raise. Ask them if they are content to agree the Statement of issues and chronology.
In practice these documents can be produced right up to the hearing without penalty. If no questionnaire has been provided a short time may be given by the judge to allow it to be produced - a couple of weeks or so.
The likelihood is they will not respond as my wife has a McKenzie friend who has left everything to the last minute, and is non responsive to questions.
Additionally, it states on the Notice of First Appointment that by a specific date you must provide the Court (and the legal representative of the) other Party
A concise statement of Issues between you and the other Party
Notice in Form G
Does the following requirement only apply to me, and not the other Party? Could I also submit documents at the last minute without penalty?
Thank a self representor getting help from a friend - CT
form E has to be exchanged and filed with the court.
There is no imperative for a simultaneous exchange of the other documents so you should send to the other side whether you have theirs or not. Let them be the ones to annoy the judge, not you.
