Topic: Re: How to have a spouce removed from home
Written By: Molly - 6 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Sounds like a case of domestic abuse to me.....perhaps Mrs C could look for support from an organisation such as saferplaces.co.uk.....at least they can give confidential advice of her options. I was in a similar position with an ex partner who refused to leave my property despite having somewhere else to go...it was only when I spoke to the police that they suggested I was a victim of domesti
Topic: Ex wife now wants to claim spousal maintenance
Written By: Molly - 6 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
My partner has just got to the decree nisi stage of his divorce and learnt yesterday that his ex wife has now appointed a solicitor with a view to claiming spousal maintenance from his wages. He had thought that they had come to an amicable agreement about finances so this has come as a bit of a surprise. The basic facts are Marital home is owned outright and ex wife still lives there with t

Thank you for the reply.....I think the clock has now ticked past the point of which she could submit an answer so guess it will be just a matter of time for the papers to be dealt with by the courts....am guessing the time taken for this must depend in part on their workload.

The acknowledgement of service has been signed and returned but she has indicated in question 1c that she does not agree with the statements of unreasonable behaviour and in question 4 that she intends to defend the case. If she fails to complete the necessary 'answer' form by the required date and submit this does this mean that the case can effectively go forward as undefended. My partn

My partner is in the process of divorcing his ex wife on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour and the divorce petition has been prepared and sent to the courts for processing and issue. He has been advised by his solicitor that these should be received by his wife within the next few days. However she is now indicating that she has been advised by her church elders not to sign the divorce pa

Just adding this question on to this thread as previous answers give the background to the case..... My partner has today spoken to his ex wife and explained that he wishes to proceed with divorce and will be doing so on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour. He has shown her the grounds that he is intending to use on the petition in the hope that they can 'agree' which would be 'acceptable' t

So just to clarify here..... ....it is the husband (my new partner) who is issuing the divorce petition against his ex-wife and he is the one who wishes to remarry.... ...he needs to indicate on the divorce petition that he intends to pursue a financial claim even though in a sense it would be the ex-wife making a claim against him (not sure if I have that right) as on balance he probably h

If that is the case then we have already passed that point....now living together with new partner in house owned by new partner. I appreciate that this will be taken into account but can do nothing about that as that is where we are. Other than the reasons already given is there anything specific that getting remarried would affect. In case it is of any relevance the family home owned by

I have read somewhere that it is advisable to complete the financial settlement for a divorce before getting married again. What are the specific reasons for this and what are the consequences if someone chooses to get remarried before a financial settlement is reached with the previous spouse.

Finally making some progress having been to a local solicitor and restating the facts.....her answer was much more positive and no reason why he cannot seek a divorce. The ex-wife has agreed in principle to not contest the divorce but will have to wait and see exactly what happens when the papers are served. Am hoping that we can now proceed to get to where he wants to be. Have got a few question

Still trying to find a solution to this one.... ....my partner has recently been to see a different solicitor as the first one seemed reluctant or unwilling to pursue the divorce...he had taken the list of 'unreasonable behaviours' but she did not consider that this was an option.....unfortunately the next one was not much help either and basically said that he would have to lie and make the unr

Thank you all for your advice. Having considered the options I think that my partner will be heading down the route of divorcing his wife on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour ; we are currently collating a list of possible unreasonable behaviours that he can take to his solicitor on our return from holiday next week so that he can get the ball rolling in terms of moving this forward.

Just picking up on the last comment if I may with a question....if the house is jointly owned as a joint tenancy does it need the agreement of both parties to convert it to a tenancy in common, I would assume it did......or can one party initially serve the notice to do this on the other party.....and also where do i find the appropriate form etc to be able to do that.

In reply to the above comment about legal separation.....is this something that can be done by one party without the other parties consent or do both parties have to agree to it.....if joint consent is required this will be the sticking point.... Our problem at the moment seems to be that his wife is burying her head in the sand (or rather in her church) and totally refusing to discuss any mat

Just to add some additional information in case it helps....effectively the marriage was over long before we met....a couple of years ago his wife rejected him and said that she no longer wanted to sleep with him anymore, this was hard for him to accept and I know that he was very hurt by this. Since then they have slept in separate bedrooms and have effectively led very separate lives to the poi

Andyk, thank you for your reply. The sticking point here is I think finding suitable grounds for unreasonable behaviour as so far his current solicitor does not consider that anything she has done can be termed as 'unreasonable' that will stand up in court. If anything it is my partner who has demonstrated unreasonable behaviour by choosing to follow his life with another woman. As far as a

My new partner wants to get a divorce from his wife so that he can be legally free to be with me. However his current wife has stated that she does not want to get divorced despite him admitting that he is with me and wants his future to be with me. The situation is slightly complicated in that in order to do his work he needs at some points to continue to live in what has been his marital ho
