Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are you both?-How long have you been married?-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?-Please list assets and pensions you both have (both sole and joint), together with values and respective mortgages/loans?-What are your respective incomes?
-Was there a pre-nuptial agreement signed and witnessed prior to the marriage?
Thank you for confirming. In England and Wales, ring-fencing assets - especially when it is a long marriage and there are children is extremely difficult even with a pre-nuptial agreement and if divorce proceedings are commenced then all assets will need to be disclosed and negotiations or a court application pursued to settle these.
In relation to the HR1 this can only be used if the property is the former matrimonial home. In the case of other properties which are not the matrimonial home but which parties have an interest in, a caution can be registered using form UN1 for a unilateral notice but you should be aware that as you are married you do not need any registrations on title to consider properties as part of a settlement.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
