Yes he does. I expect he will appear with his barrister only at the FDR.
Already done this but he insists on going to FDR without providing information about the accounts or closing statements.
Can I adjourn the FDR unilaterally without his approval to postpone it?
Most importantly what should I say at the FDR and what should I do ?
Can i ask at the FDR the court to order him to show balance and/or closing statements for these accounts as I know sort codes and account numbers.
I am pretty sure my husband wants to go to final trial to bring me down with the legal costs and force me to accept all he demands.
What do I need to do to ensure at least that at the FDR the judge orders him to reveal balances of these accounts or closing statemetns?
Also should I reveal at the FDR the sort codes and account numbers as I didn't do so at the questionnaire only left the question open mentioning the bank name.
I know that due to regulations banks need to keep account details closed or not for 6 years.
Can the court order him at the FDR to reveal these accounts and what if he refuses and we go to final trial and he still hasn't provided closing statements (imposible to do as then thee accountss were open) or balances?
What if he only partially reveals balancces from a year after the separation when the funds were already moved else where.
Does the court have the power in the simple case of known accounts not disclosed to order them that they do and what are the penalties if someone doesn't respect that?
An FDR order wher the FDR judge orders him to reveal those balances means I can sleep reassured that I won't at least be forced to final trial without this money being added to the asset pool ?
Does it matter? we were married for 5 years, together for 8 years.
Some accounts we opened together, he opened with the same institution as me to get advantage of teh rates. Also there has been emmail arriving during our marriage and tax certificates as both me and him where doing our tax returns.
Why do I have to justify how I know of the account numbers?
in his answer he didn't even explicitly denied they existed, only that they were closed some time ago.
Also, our papers for the tax return were placed together in two folders next to each other in my office and he didn't get those when he left.
They are old tax returns from 2008 and just have the tax certificates from these accounts which I already knew about anyway.
Also, for instance one of them was set up as a payee when I transferred money to him.
we were married so we opened each other's mail and we knew each other's accounts.
some of these accounts I opened myself the same time he opened his to take advantage of the good rate.
What are my alternatives?
I realise that my question is actually the following.
Knowing that my husband will not cooperate no matter what letters etc I write what is the right strategic action in terms of legal actions !
What are teh powers of the court?
I know in greece the court can order that he oopens these accounts since I know sort codes and account numbers and also there is no bankruptcy or they are not offshore accounts etc. Just standard uk accounts.
I also know because i work in banks that it is a regulatory requirement for the banks to keep all details of these accounts for 6 years so he can't claim these records etc don't exist or he can't get them.
I am trying to udnerstand what are the powers of the courts in UK.
Do they have sijmilar powers or is it in reality that there is no way to force someone to disclose accounts if he doesn't do so himself.
In essence, I suspect that my husband having had cllose friends and family to advise him they told him that there is nothing i can do if he decides not to disclose these heavy in savings accounts.
So he didn't disclose them and he wont' unless there is serious arm twisting..
It is a lot of money , almost same as teh equity in the matrimonial home. He was the saver whiile I was naturally paying and covering needs and shopping and furnishing our place etc..
Also low mortgage rate meant he was putting savings elsewhere rather than paying mortgage.
