Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What makes you believe that you will have to pay him any maintenance?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Clare,

He has a lot of support and I have none. One friend of his is a solicitor and he manged to get him legal aid for the divorce. Also, the family court does not protect me. They do not listen when I want a separate room. He has a court order not to come near me, but the family court does not care. Everything appears to be against me at the moment.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Why have you been in court for the divorce?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

For the costs of the divorce.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
That is very unusual - when was the Decree Nisi granted?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

29. 19. 2014. I do not have to pay for the divorce costs after this court hearing because he forgot to tick a box. He then stopped the divorce and now tries to sue me for money.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Right so the Decree Nisi was granted and no costs order was made?
What has he done to try and sue you for the money?
Do you intend to apply for the Decree Absolute?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, I will apply for the degree absolute as soon as that is possible in accordance with the legal situation, which will be in 2 weeks time.

He filed a financial order against me and he wants me to be ordered by the court to pay for him. He is disabled and claims to be unable to ever work again.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Right - so he has asked the Court to deal with the Financial issues between you.
When is the first hearing date?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It seems there is no court hearing yet. I have not received any court date. His solicitor wants me to send over the form E for exchange before it goes to court. I am on sick leave for an indefinite time now. I hope that counts when the court sends me the date for the hearing.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Are all the financial details as set out before-on the other thread?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, with the difference that I will soon be on benefits as I only get statutory sick pay.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Then you have nothing to fear from this process - you will not have to pay him anything.
Fill the form in and send it off and let them get on with it.
Please ask if you need further details
