No I am afraid not, just the settlement agreement which was written up by a solicitor who has since stopped practicing. The document was signed and witnessed.
I should be able to have the document re certified as true copy of original by the witness as I only have a copy.
Is there any mileage in pursuing damages against the Prudential around the misinformation (in writing) about the decree absolute also the precedence set by paying me compensation disscluding my ex wife (also much correspondence around as they initially refused)?
Absolutely not, and likely to use any news of its maturity to pursue claims upon the equity, the separation was acrimonious, worsened by my fight to keep custody of the children.
I could try offering monies to tempt her to sign but if she were to discover that I had no alternative, I feel sure this would not bode well, coupled with the fact that she has had several unsuccessful relationships / marriages since, leaving her needy of money at present.
Apologies for earlier, Clare not Clair! Doh!
Maturity value is circa £20300
Since May 2000 i have paid £37.10 per month, so approximately £6826
Note if useful extracts from settlement document (would be useful if I could send you it but cant find a way to attache it to my reply) Ex was given half its value at the time.
Have a question, is the settlement agreement wort the paper its written on?
"Relinquish title to Prudential policy No 16881211Redemption value £12,500 maturity date 1,10,2015 monthly premium £37.10".
All of the above is subject to a complete and final settlement. The agreement will be final and no claim will be made over and above that outlined above at any future time.
Apologies for delay have been in work all day.
Thank you for your response not the answer I was hoping for but most probably the one I expected.
I think that the way forward will be to take it to court. The Prudential wrote to me today saying that they are trying to track my ex down.
Are you able to represent me in this matter or can you put me in touch with someone who can?
I have read up on the MIAM on the internet and it looks tedious but necessary I shall arrange to complete one.
I can find out where she lives through one of my daughters, no problem.
Although just a copy, as mentioned I have a signed, dated and witnessed separation agreement that specifically mentions the policy as part of the monies of the settlement.
Do you think it will be binding enough to win my case?
Do you think I need to get the witness to re certify her signature (as it is a copy)?
