You have to fill in a financial statement (Form E) if you are going to court in England or Wales to get a financial order after you’ve split up with your ex-husband, wife or civil partner. If you're doing without the help of a lawyer, it’s a very daunting prospect. So that’s why we’ve made this film to help. It's a companion to our written guide to applying for a financial order. You may want to watch it as well as or instead of reading the written guide.
Watch Rosemary as she completes her own form and explains what details you put where, and what all the gobbledygook actually means.
Beware, you have to send this form to the court at least 35 days before your first hearing, and some of the evidence you need to include can take months to arrive. It is therefore best to watch this film and start the ball rolling as soon as possible.
