I have now received my ex's Form G and documents, and attached it here.
It seems that they are not planning to attend the first appointment. I don't agree that my original disclosure was incomplete: the only documents missing were one CETV and the additional state pension documents, and these were sent along with MY Form G last week.
1. This form G is in fact two days late, as was their Form E. They also claimed previously that my Form E had not been received by the court or by them, when in fact it had been received by both. I suspect that the lawyer is trying to create an impression that I am causing delays when in fact the delays are being caused by her and my ex, in order to make me pay for her legal costs. Is this possible?
2. Some points in the chronology are inaccurate. Do I need to correct this, and if so how? In particular, it gives the impression that my relationship with my new partner has been continuous, and that she and I had a plan to end my marriage from the outset. In fact, this is not true; when I and the family returned to the UK from China in 2012, I was not involved with her, and had hoped that the change of context would offer a fresh start to the marriage.
3. Do I still need to attend the court for the first appointment?
4. Should I now respond to the questionnaire? Should I send a copy of the responses to the court? Are you Clare able to assist with answering some of the points with which I am having difficulty?
5. Please let me know what sum I should upload to cover your costs for dealing with the present post and the questionnaire.
6. When should I expect a response to the questions I raised in my own questionnaire?
