Ask a French Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you Clare
Her husband lives about 6 months in France, 4 months in the UK and 2 in Belarus (where his new wife is from). A very complicated situation.
I should mention that Delphine has three young children which he should support, this is by court order. Recently she wrote to us: “My ex-husband claimed he couldn't pay more and asked the judge to reconsider the child support payments. In November 2012 the judge ruled in my favour, keeping the amount due at €1500.”
I have about an A4 page of information from her. He has paid very little in total in 2013, and not a complete month in 2012 according to details I have received.
I have tried to get an opportunity to contact your organisation in replying to e-mails received from Customer Support. I just wanted to speak to someone, but I now realise I should have written to you. (I have not had e-mail replies to my questions sent to Customer Support.)
My questions are:
1. I have not used the free week offered but I understand you will have charged me the first monthly fee - even though I have not been in touch with you at all.
2. I have been acting for a person living in France, as you know. It would be better if I could transfer to her all the e-mails that have gone between us and then let Delphine be in touch with you direct.. If that could be done I presume she would get the one week free and then my first payment could be transferred to her. Is this correct?
Please advise me.
This may make a difference regarding Delphine’s case. The information I have from Delphine is this:
“What my ex has provided to prove his "poverty" is his French income tax and declarations. However, he and his wife are directors of a company he founded back in 2009, Alfarichi Ltd. Head office officially in Birmingham, but that could be just a front. At first they each held 50% of the shares, then he passed his shares to his wife. He claims that they get very little money from the company, which is not very profitable. However, I know that Alfarichi pays all his expenses for fuel, hotels, restaurants etc. “
“I also know, for example, that my ex and his new wife went on holiday to Greece in the springtime and Sardinia in the autumn of 2013, but I refuse to involve my children so cannot ask anyone to testify to that (my youngest son was invited to Sardinia and I know they stayed in a flat and hotels, ate at restaurants, flew there and back, and also know that they have recently bought a new car etc!”
Does this help?
Your s sincerely
