Ex wife failing to engage in financial remedy hearing

Ex wife failing to engage in financial remedy hearing
February 26, 2021 11:58AM
What actions can I take to ensure my ex wife engages in the financial remedy process?

I'm aware that I can ask for a penal notice to be enforced if the Form E is not completed. However, this approach seems very heavy handed and would definitely increase tensions between myself and my ex wife.

However, it seems that if I don't ask for this to be done, she can just continue to fail to return the Form E and the FDA will be adjourned endlessly.

How can I ensure the case progresses from the FDA stage to the FDR stage as quickly as possible?

Are there any specific actions I can take to ensure she engages? Presumably until she provides financial disclosure, a judge would never be able to make an informed decision. However, I have heard of people providing the Form E at the FDR or even the final hearing.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome.

I once actually had a person committed to prison for ignoring a penal notice so the remedy is there. Since you are divorcing your wife rather than marrying her and since you are having to settle finances through a court process rather than by agreement I think the time is past when you need worry too much about the feelings of your ex wife.
