9.5.2014 all i really was 2 know that i am still entitled 2 half until i sign that form about not claiming anything more from him thanks

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
Since all the properties are in joint names you retain your share of them no matter what happens.
The only thing that MIGHT be lost if Decree Absolute is granted is your right to a Pension Sharing Order - and even that may still be available.
If you have already tried Family mediation and it is clear that no agreement can be reached then you can apply to the court form the finances to be dealt with using a Form A available here
http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/a001-eng.pdf
and paying the fee of £245.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
