Topic: Re: % charge on the family home
Written By: karen9764 - 30 days ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you davidterry for that information. The reason for my question is hubby knows I can raise xxx amount of cash but it would not be enough to satisfy a judge that the split was fair. So hubby is saying once the consent order is in place he will then be able to accept the cash I can raise therefore be paid off earlier,which is what he wants. He is saying we would not need to go back to c

Once a consent order has been drawn up and everything is finalised,detailing the %split and the trigger points etc, would we need to return to court in the event that i may be able to pay off hubby sooner than our child reaching the age of 18 if the amount is less than the % originaly agreed to on the consent order,if hubby is prepared to accept it.

Thank you for your reply davidterry. The information that is incorrect apart from purchase and selling dates of houses is as follows He claims he made a £25k deposit on our first home which he didnt but he did pay off £10k of the mortgage 3 years into the purchase. One of the houses purchased was £10k more than it actualy was, and our 3rd house purchase was made with £100k cash from pr

Hubby has put dates,deposit amounts and prices of houses purchased,all wrong,among other details in the chronology. I put key dates but didn't put any deposit or purchase details. (I am self representing) Is there anything I can or should do about this ? Should I send another chronology into court with the correct details on ? Or contact hubbys solicitor. If I do nothing then the judge is no

Hubby has claimed on Form E that I have retained his personal assets to the value of 8k. I know what he is referring to and he knows as well as I do that he took these items with him 10 years ago when we split up for the first time,plus they were only worth around £1800.00 anyway. We got back together about 9 months later but he did not bring these items back with him. They were actually nev

I have been under the impression that hubby has been lodging with a friend since we separated 3 yrs ago. He has his own room and pays board,a mutual friend of ours confirmed this set up when they paid him a visit. I have recently heard that hubby is not a lodger but actually in a relationship with the person he lodges with,the room with his things in is just for show. Also this is the woman who

Of course you are correct in everything you are saying david terry. No the income he is not declaring isn't a significant amount,probably around £200 per week and i have no intention of asking for maintenance anyway,i want a clean break. I am just concerned that hubby is expressing his need for a larger share of the family home split,by lying and pleading poverty on his Form E which i find

Thank you davidterry. So if hubby makes himself look poor and destitute with his lies on Form E,there is no point questioning this as it is irrelevant to the division of the house split. Will what he puts down not make it look like he is in need of a larger share as i think this is his reasoning.

Thank you for your reply bengalgirl. Hubby is a compulsive liar,he would even lie about what he had for breakfast. We have been separated for over 3 years and during that time he has kept a low profile,been very secretative and told more lies in the past 3 years than he did in the 30 years we were together. He is pleading poverty,no money,no work,no where to live etc..even though these thin

Even though i will not be persuing maintenance is it still relevant that i raise questions regarding the lies on hubbys Form E when it comes to his income and outgoings. Our only issue is going to be the division of the family home.

Thank you for your reply davidterry. I understand what you are saying and i get that,maintenance is not a problem. I am more concerned about the picture he is painting of his earnings/lifestyle etc. He is better off than he makes out,how else can he be running his 2 cars and a van.It is clear that he is going down this pauper route for the purpose of Form E and the impending settlement.

He is being very secretive about his work. He is currently self employed but claiming that he earns very little now. He will be working either self employed or employed by his son in the new year once our divorce has gone through and the settlement already dealt with but has said it will be until he is 70. He clearly does not want to pay maintenance hence the secrecy. It is very difficult to d

You are spot on too Andy. I see what you are saying with regard to maintenance at a later date but to be honest i just want him completely out of my life...long painful story. I am more concerned with how his poverty stories on Form E are going to look when it comes to settlement.

Thank you for your reply. He has the resources but is painting a very good picture of a man who has nothing,being self employed earning cash in hand for work he carries out,enables him to lie about his income,which he is doing. I suppose he is doing this for the bigger picture as we are due to exchange Form E's and attend our first appointment soon.
