Comments are off for this post.
The Ministry of Justice does not know whether everyone eligible for legal aid can access it and the government needs to do more to ensure the sector is sustainable, a damning report from the public spending watchdog states today. And while the MoJ has succeeded in its objective of significantly reducing spending, it cannot demonstrate how much its reforms have saved the public purse, the National Audit Office said.

Comments are off for this post.
It’s a well-known fact that some people try to hide money during their divorce. They will sometimes transfer assets to family or friends, hide cash in safety deposit boxes or even set up offshore accounts, just to try and keep their ex from getting her a share of the marital assets.  Lying on income and expense declaration is common, as well.
