you. So you had £100,000 and she had £190,000.
as this transfer was done to a connected person, the disparity is at risk for
you went bankrupt, the trustee in bankruptcy probably lay claim to the £45,000
which is half of the extra that you gave her.
children are out of the equation, as is your granddaughter unless she lives
with your wife under a residence order which you do not mention. I assume not
so therefore she is out of the equation also.
you went back to live there, then other than the £45,000 I mentioned earlier,
it would not make any difference.
as part of your divorce proceedings, your wife had been awarded £190,000 by the
court as part of the divorce settlement, then the trustee in bankruptcy would
have no claim on it.
could possibly be argued in the divorce that she is entitled to a larger share
than half of the matrimonial home she already had and that is something that
would have to be sorted out with the trustee in bankruptcy depending on what
the court orders.
these facts, however, it is unlikely that your wife would have been entitled to
more than the 50% in any event, putting just £45,000 of her house at risk.
the trustee in bankruptcy decided to go for that £45,000 she would be faced
with either defending the action or raising the money to pay your equitable
share of the new house (financial) off.
that answer your question? Can I help further?
