Hi got a letter from sol. this morning stating that we will be seeking costs against my extb,and in the cicumstances there will be a Prayer?, does anyone know what this means, i am receiving legal aid. Also what is ancillary relief? Thanks.
Simply put the 'prayer'is an oath swearing that it is true 'to the best of your knowledge and belief'
Ancillairy relief, is the finacial part of sorting out the divorce, agaim simply put it is the division of marital assets and liabilities and both of your current and future earning potential, there is a bit more to and it depends on a few factors of which there are 12
some more informaqtion is available on this site and indeed on the web itself, do not go on heresay as this leads to confusion, do not rely on anyone else's opinion either look it up yourself and understand what it means
If you can afford it, use legal assistance where neccessary, do not rely solely on what you think you are entitled to, the law is grey not black and white and considers every case differently, but uses the acts of parliament to come to a conclusive state
For example there is no point asking a solicitor, 'I've got 2 kids, how do I stand" the law looks at the childrens interest first so all you will be doing is paying a solicitor £150plus per hour to answer what you can find out on the web.
So you would save some money, by looking up and understanding how it works, you cannot know for certain because one judge might award differently to another, but they will be very close
