My fiancee has just divorced after 11 years seperated. Her ex has not contributed to the house in any form ie mortgage, utilities, food etc or paid maintenance for the 4 children, the youngest now 18 during that period. He did contribute during the first 10 years before the seperation. He is claiming entitlement of 50% from the sale of the house. Is he entitled to that figure?
Hi Clare, It is valued at approximately £130,000 repayment & 3 years left, at £5000.
Things are slightly confusing.
It seems the mortgage for £25,000 was taken out in 1990, he contributed for the first 14 years. She has paid approx £200 per month for 11 years.
There is an outstanding balance of £6000 to be paid.
I have asked the same question.
I seems he claimed he could not afford to pay as at the time of the split, he was in & out of work.She has said she didn't want anything from him!!! He had the children at weekends for the first couple of years but then that tailed off.

Thank you very much for your help.
It will help to relax my fiance who has been getting herself very upset.
Again thanks for the advice.
