The property is worth about £165,000 with only about £16,000 outstanding. There are no other assets to speak of. Everything he wanted I gave to him, but I am left with most of the furniture, etc. We have already got rid of the joint account. His income for this last year was £11,000 profit from his company.
I had just recently cut my hours down so I could open my own business. My job pays me about 11,500 a year and I have just opened the Community Scrapstore at the same time that this whole thing reared its ugly head and I haven't had a penny out of it yet. So I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place.
Yes it does, but I don't know how to value it. I accept the fact that it wouldn't be a business without him as much of the revenue taken is from his knowledge and skills as a webdesigner/handwriting analysis, etc.
The fact that you are on the east coast of the US, how can you answer questions about English law?
How about an answer? It's been almost an hour.
Now I am getting pissed off. An hour and a half and no reply. Time to get my money back!! You have done nothing but ask me for more information. I will be contacting MasterCard and cancelling my payment to you if I do not have a response in the next 15 minutes!
His pension is worth more than £100,000 mine is only worth a pittance in comparison.
I think the problem is that I am 7 1/2 years older than him and have only been in this country since just before we got married. My pension has only been running for about 15 years whereas his has been going for over 30 years.
I moved over here permenantly in July 1996. We married November 1996 and were together until 7 May 2013.
Yes I did. I am still an American citizen.
Claire, I am going to assume that you are now closed for the night. I look forward to reading your next reply tomorrow morning.
