The solicitors won't do it - it's nothing to do with them beyond stating the obvious i.e. \"it appears that you may be in receipt of benefits to which are no longer entitled - you should rectify the position immediately\".

Are you duty-bound? No. Do you want to get him into trouble which might lead to difficulty settling the finances? That's your call.

If I was claiming benefits to which I wasn't entitled I wouldn't be too happy if someone shopped me to the Benefits Agency which could lead to a fraud conviction.

You can do these things anonymously but if there is a suspicion that you reported the fraud, it would make settlement negotiations rather fractious.

You can ask about the basis on which he is claiming benefits in your questionnaire. Ask to see documents relating to the claim.

You could also mention the extent and nature of his income and the basis on which it is derived in your statement of issues.

Your main concern should be to establish the available assets and income you have between you.
