UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
No I have a copy of the whole benefits statement (pages 1-3) but the court will not see the page with the actual amounts on (page 2) because he has omitted it. He obviously thought that by not submitting that particular page the court would not see his generous pension package. I want the court to see it because it strengthens my case.
If I take a copy to court will I be able to present it or will they say it is not submissable because I should not have a copy?
It came to my home and I opened it by mistake. It was in an envelope to send back to his solicitor but my ex went through my paperwork when he was in the house on his own collecting our son and took it. He knows I have seen it as does his solicitor. Luckily I had already taken a copy of it. That is how I know how generous it is. I do not want a pensions sharing order mearly to show that he can afford a comfortable level of living whereas I cannot and I should therefore have a higher % of the financial settlement.
Not as yet I wanted to seek advice from you first. It is one of my biggest arguments and hense I did not want to scupper any chance of using it in court. I didn't want his solicitor coming back saying I could not use it. Should I send him a copy of it? The date when documents and responses have to be submitted to courts has now passed.
Is he obliged to send me a copy? what happens if he replies saying his client has told him it is complete?
no - as I mentioned in the original question the pages are not numbered. the only way i know the page is missing is because I have a copy of the original
