Hi, thanks for your question. That information is incorrect. As she has not remarried and there is no court approved financial settlement you will be left open to potential claims by her against your assets and income until she remarries, a court approves a clean break order or she passes away.A clean break must first be attempted by negotiations out mediation with her - if she agrees this can be submitted to court with a D81 form (outlining your respective finances) for a judge to approve. If she does not agree you will need to apply to court using form A and a £215 court fee and there will need to be a court case with the judge deciding the outcome. I hope this assists you.
