  1. Hi - I hope I have put this in the correct forum? Could someone please advise myself and my partner regarding the martial home following my his divorce over 10 years ago? He was awarded a share of the martial home in the initial order when, either she remarries, cohabits or sells the house. It did state that she could stay in the house as long as she wanted. As the children are now grown up and she has moved out of the properly over a year ago (she now rents it to their adult son and his partner) my partner has decided to pursue the matter to get the house sold so we can all move on. She apparently is renting a flat because she cannot afford the mortgage now that my partner no longer has to pay child maintenance. She did however cohabit with a partner 5 years ago but told him my partner if he pursued the matter she would deny he was living there and she would 'kick him out'! At the time my partner was not in a good financial position to pay for legal action and also two of the children were still at school so he did not pursue it. He is still not in a good financial position as he is self-employed and only has enough income to cover the monthly bills as it is. Therefore my question is, as he cannot prove she did cohabit (her solicitor has said he has to prove it), can he argue that she does not even live in the property anymore? The stress of the situation is making him ill and he can't afford the financial battle. He has been more than generous at the time of the divorce and only settled on 12.5% share of the house but she seems determined to fight him all the way. One other thing, my partner suspects she has topped up the mortgage, will this affect his share? Thank you in advance.
  2. Hello, I wondered if anyone could advise me on the following issue? I divorced my husband in 2005 after 14 years of marriage due to his infidelity. He had pays maintenance of £350, for our three children, this amount was agreed between us! However, the children are now 21 ( at uni, he no longer pays for her) 18 at college and 16 at college. I have brought the children up alone and their father sees them every 4 to 6 weeks. I have now applied to university myself (to do something for me after bringing kiddies up alone) so money is more tighter than ever. My ex husband is, from what I see (he's very secretive) quite well off and regularly has long haul holidays! My question is , am I entitled to a claim some of his pension? Or once all the children leave education am I eligible to claim anything from him? Kind regards
  3. Hi, I've just spoke to my step mother and apparently they did have holiday insurance through her bank account ( a natwest gold account) however in reading the small print when my dads illness was diagnosed the insurance said if 'if you have received any treatment or taken any medication within the last 12 months and not declared it, you are not covered'. My dad was obviously still being monitored by the hospital after the original bowel cancer. The card used to pay for the holiday was a visa debit, if that makes a difference! Thanks again in anticipation.
  4. Yes I think about trying to claim from the card issuer but they paid by a debit card not a credit card. Thanks anyway
  5. No unfortunately not, they hadn't yet sorted travel insurance believing they had time to arrange before travelling.
  6. Hello, I was hoping for some advice please. My 65year old father was diagnosed with bowel cancer three years ago and had successful treatment to which he seemed to fully recover. In June this year he booked flights (with emailflights.com, to fly with Emirates) to Australia for December to visit family at a cost of £2352.92. However we were totally shocked in August when after a routine scan he was told the cancer had returned in his liver and lungs and it was terminal. They contacted Emirates and emailflights.com regarding the flights hoping to either get a refund or change the names on the tickets so other family members could make use of them. They were told that the only thing they could do was delay the journey until next year at a cost of £500 administration fee. They cannot afford to lose especially now, that money and the stress is making things worse for my Dad. Any advice would to gratefully received.
  7. Hi, sorry if this sounds a silly question but who do you mean when you refer to 'CSA rules'? Many thanks
  8. Thank you for the advice which I do intend to follow. I will keep you posted x
  9. Hello, I have recieved a parking ticket from LDK in the Southfield Way car park when I was visiting my Dad in hospital on 19th January this year, I had bought a ticket but unfortunately it was a very wet windy evening and when I closed my car door I can only assume the ticket flipped over with a gust of wind from the door. I appealed against the ticket and they have acknowledged that I did have a ticket but say it was my responsibility to make sure it is displayed correctly even after exiting the car! They have said they have photographic evidence (which I have viewed on their website) 18 photos of my car from every angle and the ticket machine! Can anyone please advice me if the previous advice on this forum is still valid as the last reply posted was some time ago? Many thanks x
