Hi, been embroiled in divorce for approx 15 months - due in court as respondent shortly.
I have just been charged for second form E.
I have just been charged for e-mails sent by my wife directly to my own solicitor. (Please note solicitors are used as my wife instructed one from the outset and refused to speak/negotiate with me).
I failed to attend mediation within the first couple of weeks after my wife walked out - there had been no discussion and I was still somewhat shocked by my wife''s actions. I have sought mediation ever since but my wife has refused - she is now proceeding with court action and actually citing that it is I who has refused.
My wife removed a large amount of expensive items/cash when she left (as she had unrestricted access for a month post her leaving)but she still seeks further items.
In short, I seem to have been on the back foot this whole time and really feel the need to defend myself and prevent further costs - does anyone please have any advice....please, I am desperate. There are no children and we both earn the same wage.
Your solicitor has a duty to consider incoming communications relating to your case but should write to your spouse''s solicitor upon receipt of the first direct communication requesting that they inform their client only to communicate through them.
