Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
There is no set of guidelines.
The Court has wide discretion in the matter to determine what evidence is required - using the guidelines for financial settlement as set out here

These remain the same despite the fact that this is an application for a Variation.
It is up to the Advocates to persuade or dissuade the court as to the relevance or otherwise of the question
Please ask if you need further details
