Hi. I have a court order which states my ex should get 20% of my properties equity and he had to give me £250 per month for maintanance for our two children whom I had custody of. This was 7 years ago. After 18 months he stopped the child maintanance payments .After a year of not receiving maintanance for our children I had a solicitors letter sent to him stating he owed £3000 and no reply aswell as no payments were made to me. Now that I am selling my property he still wants 20% . Is this right seeing as he broke the order.
My solicitor was informed at the time and sent a letter asking for the £3000 that was in arrears at the time . My children are older now and working. Up until they started working it wouls have been 51/2 years with no payments . £16500.
My question is seeing as he never payed me this money is he still entitled to 20% of my property equity .
