The original order was made in August 2002. My income has decreased drastically during that time. There was a pension sharing order and the order said that maintenance should be reviewed on change of income or retirement.
To be clear though, I am not asking whether I am entitled to pay less maintenance, that is clearly the case. My question relates to whether there is any recourse in law to one solicitor requesting information from the other (in this case my ex wife's) for disclosure of financial information, and this request being completely ignored. A letter was sent from my solicitor to my ex wife's solicitor a couple of months ago and there has been no reply.
Original order August 2002. My income has subsequently decreased by approx. 70%. Maintenance should be reviewed on retirement or change of circumstances. A pension sharing order was made. However, my question does not refer to whether I am entitled to a reduction in maintenance payable. My question askes whether there is any recourse in law to my ex wife's solicitor not replying to my own solicitor's letter to disclose financial information by a certain date. Surely a solicitor cannot simply ignore another solicitor's letter.
