The order made was to re-pay her dad the full amount of money, as it was joint, according to the judge. The judge used investment asset as means to pay this, which was a house I owned prior to marriage. My ex claimed to pay back 25% of the amount (with misrepresented transfers), which left another 75% to be taken from the house. The impact is considerable, as we both got money from our parents, but the money from her parents was considered a loan due to the factors I mentioned above. All in all, this represents over 30% of our total assets. With the reduction, and my ex keeping FMH, it has left me with very little. Therefore, I need to make sure I have the right legal arguments to state these documents were unproved, and statements were falsified to sway the judge.

Multiple reasons, the bank statements given to me had to be requested several times to the ex, including a request in the schedule of deficiencies. So I only got it a few weeks prior to the hearing. My barrister at the time tried to explain to the judge the statements were fabricated, but this was ignored by the judge. However, the cross check with the evidence provided on the day of the hearing was not done by me or my barrister. After the hearing I put all my bundles in the garage, it is only when I had to look again, when other side put costs against me, and I spotted it.
