My ex has now hired a solicitor and has responded to my proceedings in the Federal Circuit Court. I understand that we will be ordered to provide full and frank disclosure. My ex is convinced that for a period of approx 8 years (at least from what a mutual friend, that tried to mediate between us early on, has indicated to me), which also covers approx 2 months after I left the family home in June last year, that I was withdrawing 'his' money from a home loan offset account and business account and depositing it elsewhere in my name only. My question is (I do have a solicitor but trying to save some $$$ and I'm asking here for an indication as to whether I'm going to have to take annual leave from my employment to start preparing), will I be expected to produce 8 years or even more, of financial records such as bank statements for the property settlement? Or is there only so far that is considered fair and reasonable to go back? Our de facto relationship was approx 28 years long.
