My partners ex-wife, as of April this year, has asked him to

Customer Question

My partners ex-wife, as of April this year, has asked him to complete a Clean Break consent order. My partner will have to disclose any savings that he has and also any equity in the property that we now have a joint mortage on, but prior to this the properyty was in my name only. His ex-wife doe snot have any savings and instead has debt.
My concerns are when a judge loks a the order, are they likely to instruct my partner to pay his exwife a lump sum from his savings or from the equity in the property? (the equity was in the property before it was nade into joint names)
Grateful for any guidance.
