Where there are financial matters to be addressed within a Divorce, which is in most cases, we need to establish at any early stage whether it is appropriate to issue what is known as an Ancillary Relief Application. Making such an Application to the Court should not be regarded as a hostile step or a last resort, but rather a way of starting the Court timetable.

When addressing financial matters, it is incumbent upon both parties to provide full financial disclosure. There is an obligation upon the parties to make full and frank disclosure of all material facts, documents and any other information relevant to the issues. The duty of disclosure in an ongoing obligation and includes the duty to disclose any material changes after initial disclosure has been given.
