My ex has changed his solicitor and says he hasn't done his Form E and they are applying for an extension. Now what happens? Will this go against him when we finally go to Court?
Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008. During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousands of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in that case. I will be online and off-line all day today.

It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with me while I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able to advise you fully.

Can you please explain your situation a bit more?
Hi
The fact that he has changed Solicitors will not be seen as a good reason for his failure to complete the Form E
However it is likely that extra time will be given - so agree to 21 days but subject to a penal notice - meaning that he can be sent to prison if he fails to produce it - and ask for a costs order for the wasted hearing
