If you’re representing yourself, you can include your name and address on the bottom box. If not, include that of the firm that you will be using.
For the case of 1.6, indicate the stage at which the divorce is at. 1.7 all the way to 1.9 should also be easy to fill out but for 1.10 include all the children that are in the family and for section 1.11, you can include any health condition that may be of any financial impact.
N1.13 requires you to put a value to the amount of child maintenance that you will need. You can fill in section 1.14 in the event that you have another case in court that you would like reviewing. Be explicit and include any documentation that may be important in the case. In section 1.15, make sure that you only fill in information that relates to you and your STBX and not anyone else and the last part quite hassle-free.
