I was in coourt yesterday due to my ex wife's difficult

Customer Question

Good Morning Harris, I was in coourt yesterday due to my ex wife's difficult reasoning for the absolute. We were marred ffor 7 years she had children but we did not the children are no adults and do not live at the property. 2.5 years agon the marriage broke down she changed the locks and i have not had access to my persanal possessions since. i have been paying all the mortgage during our married time and for the past 18mths half of it. The court ruled that i was to continue to pay the sume of £58k over the next 7 years with no financial claim on the house as my ex cannot afford to live there. She has no claim to my 30 years RAF pension. I just wanted a clean break and feel that the Judge has made a wrong decision and it has really upset me, do you think I should appeal ? Thank you

To pay ex £700 per month maintenance this can be altered down as a secured loan is paid of and if the property is mortgaged to lower the payments per month. I do not get any thing back from the house. I also have no come backs if she fails to keep up the payments and then the house has to be sold, with no more payments from me.
She has know right to any of my pension.
