Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you for the reply. I have given very clear instructions to the solicitor just now to make a court application so we can get this moving. I asked them the same question about numbers and again just get vague answers of broadly "it depends". I have no idea what my Ex might want but I would assume it to be as much as it is possible to obtain as she is quite displeased with me for

Thank you david for you input. My solicitor every time I have asked has fobbed me off with its complicated and not easy to calculate. My Sol seems obsessed with waiting for them to voluntarily disclose which they asked for in July and we were ready a week later and have been stonewalled on since. Whenever I raise it the implication is that it will cost me much more if they have to do the form E a

The decree nisi was issued in June but the other side are objecting to the decree absolute being applied for due to wanting to protect the spouse pension rights until ancillary relief is resolved. I want to settle matters fairly quickly but have no idea what to expect. As I mentioned I have one child living with me and she has two living with her which appears to muddy the waters slightly. Gi

I googled "How to Enforce a Financial Order in a Divorce Case" and from what i can see of the results perhaps a Judgement Summons would be the way to go once he misses the payment. I would be inclined to let him know that this is what will happen if he defaults on the payment. Em

Topic: Re: Deferred Property Charge on Divorce
Written By: EclipsedMind - 2 years ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you for the reply. My Ex works cash in from what I can tell so maintenance is not going to happen but child benefit goes to me now. Looking at the relevant part of the order I think maybe the wording lets me down a bit as it states the money is to rehouse the Ex. Interestingly the wording states : "the charge shall not become exercisable and shall not carry interest until"
Topic: Deferred Property Charge on Divorce
Written By: EclipsedMind - 2 years ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
I have a deferred charge on a property as a result of the divorce. It has usual trigger conditions (children 18, cohabiting, marriage etc.). In the intervening 5 years the children by order of the court now live with me as Ex has issues. Six months ago Ex almost succeeded in fraudulently removing that charge and selling the property. There is a civil judgement from a DJ which was used to reinsta

Re point 4 - Whilst divorcing you can open a CSA case yourself to remove the child maintenance from the courts consideration and just pay according to the CSA calculation. This might simplify matters for you. South Africa is a Reciprocal Enforcement of Maintenance Orders (REMO) listed country so your current wife could pursue you through that mechanism for maintenance if you were not providing

Written By: EclipsedMind - 4 years ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you for the prompt answer. Regarding point 2 I was worried that if the 60% was not enough for her to rehouse then I might have trouble enforcing it especially if she has no income and claims she is ill. The order includes a non settlement penalty of base rate +4% per annum if it goes over the settlement trigger dates - is that likely to stand up in court when she refuses to settle?

Five years ago by consent order the FMH was sold and all monies used to buy Ex a new property and a 40% charge placed against it in my favor. The deal was brokered by the solicitors and favoured teh Ex quite nicely as she didn't disclose the 30k or so she had drained and hidden from the joint accounts during the divorce. To this day Ex has not worked and lives off benefits / child maintenance
