Thank you for your quick reply. We have been married 12 years and lived together for one year. We no children, but 3 more attempts at IVF paid for. Yes, I think my solicitor has lodged a homes right notice. The mediator said this was not a case for mediation due to my husband's degree of lying and secrecy about so much of his life. This has all been like a nightmare - I adored my husband. He said "everything was good until I started to ask too many questions." He then petitioned me once he knew I was about to file for a divorce. He admitted the other affair and holidays abroad etc. He has been paying this woman monthly money but nothing to me at all. I can't believe this is happening.
Thank you for your help. I would like to sleep at night.
Thank you for your answer. My own solicitors are saying that I will hopefully get my home and maybe 3 years of maintenance. They are saying that the most of the assets were owned pre-marriage and are therefore ring fenced and not part of the matrimonial pot. Everyone I have spoken too has said the same as you. When I looked up pre-marital assets, it stated that pre-marital assets are used to meet the needs of both parties and will only be ring fenced if there is enough for both parties. My solicitor says there will be 3 columns - my assets, his assets and marital assets - is this true? Will his pre-marital assets be shared or will he keep them? I was told that it will cost about £3,000 to get Interim Maintenance in Court and if it fails then I will be liable for costs - is this true? Can you explain what happens with the pre-marital stuff? Everything is in my husband's name, so would it still be a 50/50 split? Can you clarify these points please? Thank you for your kind words.
That is really clear and reassuring, thank you. Given ***** *****ves in London, I would then assume from what you have said that I will keep my home, as it would be unfair for him to kep both. I get the impression that it is basically subjective and context related in terms of outcome. Am I understanding your answer fully?
Fantastic, thank you Caroline. I am delighted with your service and will rate you now.
