About Me


  1. I am asking generally as I can see things going this way if I'm honest. Embarrassingly I have been married around 13 months after a 6 year relationship and we bought a property Feb 2017. Mother in law provided £60K as gifted deposit (proof that it was non returnable) and Wife provided £100K that was gifted to her by her mother. We set the TR1 up as tenants in common 70% her way and 30% mine due to the fact that she provided roughly a third of the houses value upfront and then we went halves on the mortgage. We also setup with a solicitor that the first £100k of the sale of

  3. I hope someone here can give me some advice. I am divorced, living in the marital home which has a joint mortgage and a joint secured loan. My ex husband is living with his new girlfriend in her house and is making 0 contributions to either the mortgage or secured loan. I am currently paying the £1200 per month on my own. As I am the one living in the house with my son, my ex knows the mortgage company and secured loan company will lean on me rather than on him to make payments. I have been going on for 5 years like this with no contribution from him. My ongoing pro
  4. I'm posting this on behalf of a family friend. He's a retired 72-yr-old and in the middle of a divorce (to a Turkish lady he was married to for 9 years). At one stage he thought he was going to lose the house he's lived in for 50 years and owns outright (worth 90K), but it is looking increasingly as though he will get to keep the house but will have to pay her between 15K and 25K (not sure why since she's already taken his entire 25K life savings whilst they were married, but who am I to question the law). He wants to know... (a) Since the house is not part of

  7. Hello I am very confused not least because my wife has walked out on our marriage after 35 years and apart from the relationship upset there is a considerable amount of property in the mix. Unfortunately she left in the last tax year so spousal transfer without CGT is going to be a massive problem. I have spoken briefly to a solicitor but he just confused me even more. I have no issue with the relationship split but the business split is going to be complicated for all sorts of reasons not least CGT. My wife and I are on talking terms and are both keen to get this done smoothl
  8. Hi everyone, please be patient with me as i am new on this site. My partner divorced his ex wife a couple of years ago and it cost him over £1000 but at the time did not have more money to be able to resolve the financial side of things ie selling the property and a clean break order, so we spoke to a solicitor a couple weeks ago and she said that it can cost him between 3 and 5 thousand pounds to go back to court to sort out the financial side of things. we can't afford this kind of money as we dont have any savings etc, so we are going to attempt to do this ourselfs, the story is as f
  9. I am seperated and live in the former matrimonial home (no young children) there are two restrictions on the property in my ex husbands sole name. I bought the ex's beneficial interest from the trustee in 2009 when he (the ex) was declared bankrupt, for a nominal fee using the same solicitor as the trustee. I was unaware at that time that they were not dissolved in the bankruptcy. I only discovered that they remained 6 years later when he left me. I have recently learnt that he (the ex) will be inheriting 50% shares in two properties and will be getting a lump sum
  10. Hello all I'm just about to apply for Decree Absolute, but before I do I really want something in writing from my Husband concerning payments for the Children. I have not gone after anything which he owns and am not interested in doing so - after what has happened I just want to get away from his as much as I can. The background is: He has his own house (still mortgaged), his business (service and repair of motor vehicles). He also owns a racecar which is valued at around 12 - 15K. He apparently earns minimum wage, but also gets paid cash on some jobs (which I cannot prove).
  11. Sorry if ive posted in the wrong place, I have recently got divorced and having an NHS pension have had to surrender 24% to my ex. I have just had a letter from her solicitors demanding £3117 as admin and implementation fee which after checking on the nhs pensions website is valid, my issue is, as an ambulance man I don't tend to carry that sort of money round ( I wish I did) I have bad credit because of the marriage and after paying £425 pcm maintenance I don't have a lot left to live on, any ideas for a solution to this matter anyone, it would be appreciated.
  12. I'm currently divorced but have recently noted from the divorce documentation that a Clean Break Consent Order is needed to ensure my financial future is protected from any claims my ex wife wants to submit. There are many online websites that can help, for a fee, but I want to do this myself if possible - is there any specific forms I need to complete or download since I cannot locate any on the internet. any help appreciated.
  13. 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.
  14. I hope this is in the correct section, I am posting for a friend who is currently going through a divorce. Ok my friends husband had an affair and has moved out of the family home and into a home with new GF, leaving my friend in the property along with his 2 children who are both over 20. He has been paying 50% of the mortgage along with 50% of the loans they had taken up to renovate the property which included building an extension and although the main part of this work had been completed it had not been finished when he walked away to his new life. My friend has since finished
  15. Not sure if this is the correct forum, but a member of the site team may move it if there is a more appropriate forum. Just to give a brief overview of the issue at hand: I am living with my partner who is in the process of getting divorced. (We are living in my house and my teenage kids are living with us. I am divorced from their father.) My partner is retired and is drawing his pension. He has got two pensions from employments plus his usual state pension. He has got property abroad in Cyprus ( jointly owned with his ex which they currently rent out to pay the associated mo
  16. Hi sorry to bother here. I am new to here and I need urgent advice regarding a letter sent by my husband. Can someone kindly help me to start a new thread as follows: Husband send letter using solicitor for his intention to divorce: Hi I am a girl of 23 years old from Bangladesh. Five months ago I got married to a guy who is a student in London, UK but Bangladeshi national. He is on student visa in UK. The marriage was arranged by my family and my husband family.

  17. Hello Wondering if anyone can assist. A few weeks ago, I received a petition for divorce from my soon to be ex. I put it aside thinking I had about 28 days to acknowledge it as I was and am still in the middle of arranging moving home. Unfortunately, now I've lost the forms I was sent AND I was told I was required to acknowlede to the court within 7 days of receiving the petition. Any ideas on what I can/should do asap please? Thanks in advance.
  18. Apparently, according to a friend, you can get divorced for £60. This is apparently what her parents did. My husband and I want a divorce, there is no dispute, we don't want to fight about it, we've been separated for a while and have both met someone else. What is the cheapest and easiest way of getting a divorce? I have a form printed off the internet "Application for a decree nisi/conditional order or (judicial) separation devree/order) - it's just one page and theres the option for "undefended case" which is what seems to be the right option for us. Any advice
  19. Hello - I made appointments with 4 solicitors for free advice about my divorce, one of them carried on chatting away after the the free alloted time. She didn't mention I was going into paid time, and now I have received a bill for £135. So far I have seen 6 solictors on this basis and all have outlined what they can offer me, and given free advice. But this one solicitor decided to charge me. Is there anything I can do?
  20. I've recently separated from my husband. He's been advised that I can claim 50% of his pension accrued since the day we married and vice versa. We had 2 children before we married and were living together for 10 years before we actually got round to tying the knot. When the kids were young I worked on and off and mainly part time so didn't actually start a pension until 9 years ago so its pretty worthless just now. Should the 10 years prior to marriage be included in calculations when deciding what I should receive? He walked out and is refusing to contribute any further to any hou
  21. I was going for an administration job and reached the second stage of the recruitment/interview process, when the company suddenly turned around and stated that I would have to undergo a credit check. I have been having a few debt problems on the count of my recent divorce from my ex-partner and had to take out a myriad of loans to keep my family home with 2 young children from going under. The company realised my bad credit score and in the end did not offer me the job because of it. I am struggling to pay my rent on the low income job that I am currently doing which I have been i

  23. Hi, I am new to this site and have been going through a very nasty divorce for the last year. Things have got very bad now and my soon to be ex husband is threatening to complete an IVA. The situation is my husband left in July 13, whilst I was 17 weeks pregnant. We now have a 2 year old and a 6 month old. My husband has not paid anything towards the mortgage for our house since he left in July 13 and I have been paying this in full on my own. We have a joint loan (all of which is his debt but it is in joint names) with a balance of 23k outstanding. My husband has been paying th
  24. please advise. After searching internet for a cheap legal company to do my divorce papers, i settled on legal &Co based in Wiltshire. I have already paid for a fixed fee divorce at a cost of £460 plus another £400 for doing a consent order. They have hardly started doing any work for me when i have been shouted this afternoon 11/714 at by the case manager (john) simply for requesting an acknowledgement email for receiving my docs posted to them two weeks ago. I find the man John hyper sensitive and rude and now blaming me for rudeness. He so far as went on to say th
