My civil partner and i are about to apply for a dissolution. She does not see the need for a clean break order as she swears she will not make any financial claims on me at any point in the future. The house is soley in my name and was mine before we were civil partnered and she in no way contributed financially while she lived here with me. I understand there is no time limitation on future claims but can my ex civil partner make any future financial claims if she marries or enters another civil partnership? Would a judge view a clean break order as fair if she walked away with nothing and i kept the house (despite the fact it is mine and she doesn't want anything)?
We lived together for about 4/5 years. The house is worth approx. £90k & there is approx £55k left on the mortgage. I currently earn £17k pa and she earns about £12 pa. There are no other assets.
I brought her a car for £1500 when we split up and she categorically states its is my house as i had i before she arrived and she never paid any 'house-keeping' while she lived here.
The rush to get the dissolution is as she plans to remarry next year.
Hope that all helps
Many thanks - when you say marriage - does that include civil partnership ? I have no idea what they plan to actually do marry or enter a civil partnership
