All our properties are in my husbands name, even though we have been married for 33 years and I have helped pay all the mortgages and worked for my husband all my married life.
The court application has been made to deal with the finances, hopefully this will make him either accept my offer or hand in all his deficiencies.
I am just fed up of waiting for him as I am at my parents home, and they are very old. I have no money to rent a flat or anything else at the moment. My husband has always been very secretive about our/his finances.
We have had the first FDR hearing and was told to have all our financial disclosure in by 22nd Feb 2013. Which I did. The judge also said if we could come to some agreement before the next FDR hearing it would be cheaper for us both. I have made an offer (non prejudice) but my husband has refused it. He still has not let us have most of his financial disclosure even after asking for it twice. We did have a date for the second FDR hearing, but we are now using this date as a directions hearing from the Judge on the 29th August 2013. Then I presume we will have to go to a final hearing for the judge to do the decision making as my husband is not complying.
Yes I think this is what is about to happen next. I am aware this is what my husband will have to go to court for. My Barrister is going on my behalf as I am on holiday.
But my concern is, he doesnt seem to care what he is ordered to do, he just wont do it. If he ignores the judges order on the 29th August, what next?
In the meantime I am struggling at my 80 year old parents, and am now just about to loose a house I have been trying to buy, due to the fact my husband says he wont let me have my family home. Its so annoying and frustrating!
Sorry the outstanding information is very great! He has not even submitted basic stuff like mortgages he has re opened.
We are waiting for all his tax returns,
his company has turned over a million pounds but he has handed in some accounts that say he has made a loss.
He is denying all pensions and investments.
He was left a lot of money fourteen years ago by his father but he says he has not.
He has moved all his bank accounts
Closed two bank accounts which were joint.
The lack of information from him is endless
I will ask them, all they have said is that the judge may put a judgement or a fine upon him personally prison would be better ;). I am not sure how it all works.
If he doesnt comply with the judge or my solicitors requests, is this what may happen prison? If so where does this lead me? I will still not have anywhere to live and cannot move on.
I am sure there is a penal noticed attached to the order, but we have not applied for an occupation order, may suggest this.
I did suggest trying to get some maintenance off my husband but my solicitor said this would slow my divorce down now, and thought it best we should try and get the divorce sorted.
Richard is living in the family home as I was the one that left, so he will not move out, and I cannot see that I can live under the same roof as him as he is very controlling and can be narssistic at times. It might however give him a shock.
If my husband ignores all the court orders what will happen if he is ordered to prison? Will I have to wait till he come out before I can have my own home?
