Hi, thank you for your question. As you are making the application you should be ticking any relevant box for an order that you seek. If you are unsure what you are seeking at this stage you should tick all of them. Furthermore, no matter what you tick or do not tick, your ex-spouse is not prevented from seeking financial relief from you and can make her own application to court and the court has the power to make any relevant order they feel is appropriate.

Yes, he is able to tell the judge what he is seeking and the court can consider this in the proceedings. Despite him not contributing towards the assets, this is not the only factor the court looks at and there are various matters the court need to consider (below) when making an order in financial proceedings arising out of a marriage. I would therefore suggest that you tick all the boxes available (save for maintenance pending suit). The criteria considered by the court in these matters is:1. The income, earning capacity, property and other financial resources which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the foreseeable future, including in the case of earning capacity any increase in that capacity which it would in the opinion of the court be reasonable to expect a party to the marriage to take steps to acquire;2. The financial needs, obligations and responsibilities which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the foreseeable future;3. The standard of living enjoyed by the family before the breakdown of the marriage;4. The age of each party to the marriage and the duration of the marriage;5. Any physical or mental disability of either of the parties to the marriage;6. The contributions which each of the parties has made or is likely in the foreseeable future to make to the welfare of the family, including any contribution by looking after the home or caring for the family;7. The conduct of each of the parties, if that conduct is such that it would in the opinion of the court be inequitable to disregard it;8. In the case of proceedings for divorce or nullity of marriage, the value to each of the parties to the marriage of any benefit which, by reason of the dissolution or annulment of the marriage, that party will lose the chance of acquiring.I hope this assists you.

Yes, the property you are applying to protect should be listed in that section to discharge any beneficial interest he would claim to have.
A mortgagee is the lender.
I would suggest you tick it in the event that a pension appears in disclosure
