My STBX''s solicitor has advised my STBX to have a transfer payment paid into a different bank account to what our Court Order specifically mentioned (after which a split will apply).
I am worried that this could lead to some money going astray.
How can a solicitor advise his client to effectively breach a Court Order?
Should I be concerned?
Apparently it''s to save him the cost of a bank transfer. The correspondance with his solicitor on this subject would have already cost him more than a bank transfer!
The Order says specifically that the money should be paid into the solicitor''s account for splitting and distribution but my STBX''s solicitor advised him to have it paid directly to my STBX''s personal bank account and do the split instead himself (!).
I am very surprised that a solicitor would advise his client to act against the Order. Is this normal practise?
