Married from Aug 2000 to separation Sep 2009, Decree Nisi May 2010
Bought the home in May 2004, had been living in his flat in Docklands which went as a whole payment towards the new Barrett home. She had previously owned her own flat, sold it and moved into his six months b4 the marriage. She put some of the proceeds to the new house, about a third of what he contributed. £7k of her profit has never been accounted for. She also continued with the endowment on her flat, didn't tell him and has been allowed to keep it all as well as the total house contents, a £20k car which she bought shortly after she kicked him out of his home.
She has savings accounts with several thousand in them, an equity plan for when her parents die yet she claims she has been put out of their will recently...no reason given and judge ignored this too.
Her debts were the legal bill, two thirds of which were run up about lack of contact with his kids...she changed phone numbers, emails, the locks on the house, even the childminder to stop him having contact for the last 18 months with no grounds as they have joint parental responsibility. She has even threatened hospital staff that if dad attended one of the boy's appointments she would refuse to let him be examined!
he takes home £4,300 per month and has to give her 25% csa.She takes home £3,800 pm plus the £1000k csa, DLA, Child benefit and direct payments...her total declared income after all deductions is just under £6k per month. she is eligible to go for Clinical excellence awards but so far hasn't to keep her income artificially lower...when she applies for them(after the Absolute) she will earn approx. another £9k pa.
We have also found out that the person she has moved into the family home under the guise of Boys' carer) is in fact her lesbian partner!...no doubt why she has prevented him seeing the boys as may have found out sooner.
He has no assets at all and his debts are...£20k credit cards, £5k overdraft at it's limit, £4.5k for his previous solicitor, £5k costs. he will also have to pay towards the pension sharing order...money he hasn't got. As a result he is in an impossible position with regard to going for a Contact Order to see the kids.
