No it didnt cover that. My ex-wife had paid the mortgage from me moving out until I took her to court in Oct' 2013 so it was presumed she would continue paying until the sale.
The arreas were around £1000 plus penalties. The order was consented and agreed then put into an order.
Hi, I have not seen the final mortgage redemption statement but I guess it will be around £2000.
Due to my ex-wife not following the first court order I approximate she cost me around £5000 in the difference between rent compared to mortgage payments and furniture.
I am very concerned my ex will have grounds to pursue this matter through the courts due to not being able to follow the court order.
Hi, The order said we must settle a joint debt by paying half each and the same with one in my ex-wifes name alone. These amount to £19,000 but I have another £14000 in my name alone and £10,000 owing to my parents and my share of the settlement does not cover all of this. This is why I need to know what will happen if my ex decides to take court action against me for not following the court order and declaring bankruptcy instead.
The shortfall of £1500 was the difference of paying all my debts or not. I could pay the ordered debts but would not be able to pay the others and due to being a single parent I would have to declare bankruptcy as there is no way I can repay the debts. Due to my ex breaking the previous order and not paying the mortgage out of spite I really believe I should repay my parents first and would like to know what a judge is likely to if I break the order.
Sorry I should have explained the £1500 shortfall was with some creditors offering to reduce the debt. As I dont have enough to do this the total I will owe is more like £10000 and I have no way of clearing that amount.
