I am sorry to break it like that - but what do you think the judge can say? (in the system where man need to manage expectations in divorce proceedings) But the judge can only decide more money in her favor if there is enough earnings on your side to support her move... what is your financial situation? did you try to clarify with her solicitors before it goes to the judge?

1) You should ask for a legal advice 2) Mortgage is not automatically transferred to her with Title. Mortgage is a pure financial arrangement with the mortgaged property acting as a collateral. The fact that the Title is transferred to her is irrelevant from mortgage/bank prospective as you both are still liable under the terms of the loan (my understanding that's a joint mortgage).

Have you filed for a divorce yet? you need to get a legal divorce in India - that may not put a hard stop on the proceedings in the UK but will seriously change the balance in your favor. The divorce in India should follow UK legal practices as close as possible so your wife/her lawyer do not have a ground to argue Also you should find a solicitor specializing in international divorce

seamus, you could try make it not worthwhile for her. I mean if the potential payout is in tens of thousands - blowing that money on lawyers and court proceedings is a very real possibility. you could try to delay the proceedings as much as possible and make her spend - i assume she's not entitled to legal aid here. After spending first 10k she might rethink her demands. thoughts?

this is immigration law territory. If the spouse would have lived in the UK for 3 year than she can apply for ILR (indefinite leave to remain) and after another year she can apply for British citizenship on the basis her marriage to a British citizen. There is nothing about divorce situations there. Basically if she's not married anymore - she would have to be treated as foreign citizen living in

OK, guys (HatMan and AndyK) i do not understand why are you giving me such difficult time.

if that is not already late... You need to apply for divorce in India and follow through the end. It would be a good idea to hire a lawer in India. The advantage for you is that you can do financial settlement by India law. Providing all formalities are followed and the financial settlement is fare she would unlikely to go to the UK court. The difficult bit is that she can apply for a divorce in

Hi all, i divorced and reached financial settlement about 2 years ago, but moved to the U.S. due to work assignment a year after, with the idea to stay here in US for a few years. My ex-wife and our children live in London. I have two children (4 and 6) and i’d like to keep in touch in that setup. I pay my child support but when that was calculated we did not consider my travel cost (NY<-

Yes, she did. Basically the agreement says she is responsible for paying mortgage and maintenance of the property and she benefits from the sale (absolutely). That's why I suspect something is fishy but I could not get what exactly. Could it be something related to possible default on the mortgage?

Dear all, we divorced a few month ago (consent order has been signed etc), the divorce agreement states our home goes to her and she makes best efforts to remove me from the mortgage. The mortgage deed has both names in it. As a part of divorce settlement I had to sign 'Deed of Trust' where she gets all the proceedings from the property etc. Now, she and her solicitor came back with RX1 form

@davidterry I have to say I am a bit confused myself with all this, especially the prospects that she could go to court in the UK after the settlement. I've been talking to solicitors in both countries but it is still not crystal clear. My wife is in the war mood and wants to get as much as she can. If you could bring some fresh ideas it would be great.

We are both Russians, have been living here in the UK for the last 9yrs. Now, given my family situation I intended to move either back to Russia or to the US (due to job prospects). There are 2 properties to divide - one in Russia and another one in the UK.

Thank you for the explanations. I was advised by my solicitor to seek a divorce elsewhere on the basis that I can avoid indefinite spouse support. You may as well be right and the English court could top-up whatever is ordered elsewhere, however as I pointed out earlier, I expect to loose in a short term, i.e. the financial settlement would be more in my ex-wife favour in compare to what I w

Being on the receiving end of it I could not care less about Parlament's original intentions but see the practicalities of the implementation, hence have to look for a solution. I don't see any reason to laugh either as we discuss real issues here and not some theoretical law problems.

@davidterry With all respect David you are biased. Most countries (except may be some extreme cases in the Middle East) are pretty reasonable when it comes to dividing assets/child support when the marriage breaks down. For instance Russian law grants higher child support payments than English law (25-30% of income); and wife support payments come on top of that till the child is 3 yo. What

I would consider obtaining a divorce in India instead. Apart from the obvious cost advantages you are likely to avoid a lot of nonsense of UK divorce laws. There should be applied the rule of the first proceedings - i.e. if someone started your divorce proceeding in India first the court in the UK would not be able to consider the same matter. As for the the question of 'Can she claim anything

Dear David, My wife and I have dual citizenships (UK and another country); we married 8 years ago in that country and we may get a divorce in there (i.e. in the country we married) and continue to stay in the UK (at least I intended to do so). We have 2 children under the age of 3. The rules in that country are such that the spousal maintenance is paid till children are younger that 3 year.
