many excuses from "Cant Afford payments as business is bad" to "New partner to look after" to "having to rent a house while his home is refurbished"
I have made an application to the courts to have him answer his breech of my consent order and it will take place end of August. so I have challenged his reductions and am claiming back payments.
My BIG concern is he has now applied to the courts to have the payments reduced before I go to court in August. We have to complete form E as a process to this.
I cant afford more legal costs and want to know if it is possible to represent myself at court and how difficult is this?
The original order was made in 2009. My financial position has only changed due to the reduced maitainance my ex-husband forced on me ie order was for :
1. £1000pm for our daughter
2. £1200pm monthh for spousal
My ex has already approached the CSA and had our daughters maitenance reduced to £400pm. This is all that he pays at the moment so I am £1800 pm worse off
thanks for your reply. I have read the Form E and think I can manage to fill it in thank you.
I have a concern about the question regading my home in relation to form E. I have a home valued at about £400k and a small £24k mortgage. The house was signed over to me as part of my divorce settlement. My question is will I have to sell my house if my ex proves he cannot afford to maitanine the payments at the current level and share proceeds with him?
Finally, xcan I go to court with just a barrister to save on the lawyers cost? If yes, can I approach a barrister of my choice to represent me?
