No. We just signed an agreement between the two of us listing how we would separate things. Her boyfriend I believe drew up the document. He is an accountant and obviously wanted her to leave me before the company they both work for was taken over by a foreign company for £65 million. I do not know what she received but I believe it was a substantial amount to allow her to be the owner of 2 flats in London a year later. She now only has one property with a value of £1.3 million.
No I have not remarried.
Cannot prove it but she asked for the divorce in February, asked me to sign the agreement in March and in April the company was taken over. Given her boyfriend/boss was and is still the CEO who was brought in to oversee the sale I cannot believe she did not know. I guess at that time she would not have known the exact figure however. But I believe she knew it was substantial and acted as instructed by her boyfriend. We had been together for 30 years of which we were married for 18.
I believe she received payment some time in August 2002 when the takeover was completed, I believe she will have received both cash and shares in the new owners company.
I found out in summer 2003 that she then owned 2 properties.
yes. I just did nothing about it because I was very depressed due to her leaving me. . I was having a lot of problems at work also. I also agreed to a divorce on the grounds of a breakdown rather than adultery. I was not in a good way if you understand. Conflict was not something I could handle. I then went to live in France to get away from everything. I am now in contact with my ex -wife after 13 years and become fully aware of how well she benefited from her shares.
She received money from the sell out which she then used to purchase the properties. The sell out happened after the separation but before the divorce. I am concerned that I have not made this clear in my earlier responses. This process seems to be taking s long time.
I stopped working in 2003 and moved to France. I bought and ran a B&B . The business closed in 2013. I now live with my parents and I am unemployed. She is still working. I believe her salary is circa £70000 pa.
It is currently on the market for sale. Has been for 3 years. The asking price is Euro 480000 but the market is very slow.
Current value according to Zoopla is£1.3 million
Ok Thank you for your time and effort
