Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening and thank you for your patience. I work full-time as a partner in a law firm so, sometimes, there is a significant delay before I respond due to my workload. Ok, so you and your husband are going to need full financial disclosure if you haven't done so during these proceedings already. With regard to the company, you'll need to see the articles of association and the recent accounts (3 years). Seeing as it's a very short marriage, I'm not entirely convinced you'll be able to make out a significant claim against the company as I'm guessing the company was active before you were married so it's not strictly a matrimonial asset. If he's not prepared to play ball over the accounts, you could keep the pressure on him by saying you're going to ask the court to appoint a forensic accountant to examine his company accounts.
