    Default Divorce and filling in form E

    Hello,

    My wife has recently filed for divorce and has requested I complete a Financial statement (form E) for a financial order under the matrimonial causes act.

    I've only been operating through a limited company since April so there's no real history and I have no Accountant so I'm trying to fill the form in before sending to my Solicitor for review.

    It's a bit of a vague question but does anyone have experience and advice as to how to fill the form in? I'm scratching my head as to what to put in each section.

    Thanks!

    Why don't you have an accountant?

    You need to talk this through with your solicitor.

    I did it without a solicitor - but then I had the best McKenzie friend in the UK. Its a very complex area.

    I suggest you are honest.

    Are there children involved?

    I'm filling it in ahead of talking through with my solicitor. There are children involved but hopefully we can keep it out of court. It's complicated further as my wife can't work so is looking for spousal maintenance or a financial order of some sort.

    Northernlad - I'm picking up the accounting side of things myself. Given how early in the life of the company it is, there have been no accounts or returns submitted yet so it's hard to know what to put on the form.

    I think that's why he suggested an accountant! There is more than just submitting returns.

    Ah yes, usually the first mistake a contractor makes. I'd say you aren't looking at your VAT post.

    But good luck with accounting using a free public forum. What could go wrong.

    If you are open, honest, answer questions posed with full disclosure then the fora herewill give solid advice.

    https://www.wikivorce.com/divorce/

    If you are not it won't end well.

    If you think "i know i will put down a genuinely paid salary of 10k and leave the rest in the company" that won't end well.

    If you think "everything we have is joint property" thats a start point. The question is how it gets split. With a non working wife and limited funds it may become an issue. The first point however is ensuring kids are properly housed, funded.

    Sensible advice needs a lot of personal info about your situation.

    Judges will always look for clean break settlements if funds allow.
