no I didn't know this - thank you.
I am keen to have an FDR before moving to Final Hearing but would argue that it must be based upon fact not conjecture. No tax returns, illegible bank statements and statements in a foreign language, mainly cash transactions, £70 000 in cheques last year with no idea what they relate to despite claiming £2000 payment for an accountant! IN fact little substantiation at all. 2 first appointments later with two judges asking for information and it is still like this, orders are ignored or half done ... I would argue that it is impossible for a fair FDR to take place. The other side has barristers I am an LIP and increasingly they are bulldozing their wishes to the court ... I wish to be able to ensure that a FAIR FDR based upon substantiated fact occurs.
18 years ,marriage. Two children (CAFCAS thankfully now involved with daughter who resides with me in England 14 years old and court granted residence and protection to me in January. Our other child resides in France with my x wife. Xwife is very net worth (1.5 million plus) landlord Turkish, I am a man of straw. Our home in England jointly owned with jointly held 300k mortgage value 300 k so no equity. Our property in France jointly owned, value 280k, unencumbered. Turkish properties -inherited by x wife valued over 1.5 million. Jointly owned chattels of 40K all retained by xwife in France.
All I am seeking is that I keep house in UK and she pays her share of mortgage (150k) she can have everything else...
