They are totally divorced-the 6 weeks period finished in June 2013.
They have lived together 40 years
Their children are grown up and live with their respective partners.
The house is worth about £180,000
My brother left home in December and started divorce proceedings inJanuary 2013. He did get Legal Aid but that has now been stopped so he has no Legal "backing" His only income is Jobseekers allowance. My sister in law did agree,in writing, to sell the house and she also admitted to having £42000 in cash. My brother's solicitor sent a letter stating that she had 1 week to let my brother have half of the cash. Nothing happened and he still hasn't got any money from her. (This was in January )Without any legal backing I am afraid that she will not do anything. What can we do ?
My brother had a good, well paid, job until 2 years ago when he was made unemployed because of the reccession ( He was in the building trade ).He then began to ask the family for money to pay off different debts eg credit card and energy bills etc. My mother took out an equity release to help him and gave him approx £25k. The rest of the money my sister in law horded away. It was not until just before he left that my brother realised that there was any money. To put you in the picture, he was mentally and physically abused. He was like a tramp when he left home. He is now much stronger but the scars are there. She is a total psyco. She has bipolar. All he wants is half of the money and the house. She keeps phoning and harrassing him to go back and she doesn't want to sell the house.
I don't know that information
Could you give alternative options please. If you can let me know what the boxes are, I may know the answer.
