We lived in Canada from 1991-2001 we bought a piece of land before leaving which my husband transferred soley to his name about 5yrs ago; I own a house with mortgage in my name solely; he works in Saudi Arabia in very high earning job; there are no debts other than 40k approx remaining on mortgage.
We had RRSP separately with each other being benefactor. I am not sure if Gordon still has his-approx value of mine 40k (canadian) -his was probably similar
Let me know if you require anything else
In terms of assets Clare what do you refer to or include? His annual salary is in excess of 120k (US)-my home valued at approx 160k (UK)-Canadian property probably in region of 130k (can dollar) and investment as mentioned
We have been separated for two years and yes I feel I am entitled to some claim.
I am unsure of Canadian exchange but can check further-we married on 21 May 1994 so would have been together 20yrs this year-so I guess 18yrs
No Clare-sadly I haven't heard for him for several months now. We had furniture in storage in Canada and I asked him to arrange for that to be shipped over as I couldn't afford it but as mentioned initially only contact I have for him is email and he did not reply.
We separated sadly but in good terms hoping someday there could be reconciliation so it is sad not to have any communication with him.
Things like our wills etc all need sorted and policies where naturally we are stated as each other's benefactor.
When he first left on few occasions when he would ring monthly or so he would transfer some money to my bank to help with car insurance. He is not a bad guy just think obviously with his new life and lady in Thailand I no longer factor in his thinking.
I am unsure of value of land now but imagine yes it is of similar value to my house.
Yes that is more or less the case
I am unsure of Gordon's-only to know he has had a generous pension since joining Saudi Aramco in 1997. I recently finished a job I had been in for 12 yrs and have pension of 42k (euro); I am now in new job also with pension since March.
I am afraid I have no value on Gordon's other than that it was generous.
He is living in Hua Hin-in Thailand. I understand he has either bought or is renting a house there, with his new partner but I do not have an address.
I have his work address in Saudi Arabia if that is useful-his employer is Nabors Industries Inc. , of which Pool Arabia Co. Ltd is a joint venture company with Nabors Drilling International Ltd (Houston,USA) . He has been with them not since 1997 but 2000; their address is Pool Arabia Ltd, PO Box 2862m AL-KHOBAR 31952 SAUDI ARABIA (966 3)(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
The last pay stub I can see is from 2008 period 8/25/2008 to 9/7/2008 and it was for $7399.68 (US)
I came across one pension/investment plan valued at $16,000 canadian (valid June 2013); and his current employer one at 2005 was valued at $28,234 (can); I have nothing more recent on that one.
I am afraid that is all the information I have to hand
Yes he works in Saudi Arabia for 5 weeks then has 5 weeks off when he goes back to Thailand
We have been apart 3 years
I can wait; it's the limbo which is disconcerting. Is there a preferred timeframe?
