I was divorced from my husband in 2003. My solicitor and the barrister failed to acknowledge that my husband who had been a director on a company transferred his company share to his father and two brothers. The company is still in business. My father has told me that my lawyer team should have listen to me and have brought the matter to the judge but they did not. Do I have a claim against my lawyers for failing to carry out my instructions? At the time, a great deal of pressure was being placed on me as it was late in the day and the lawyers were pushing me to make a decision on the settlement. I live in the UK. Where the matter was decided. Tracey XXXXXX (Miss)
Yes I did and to be honest I had no real idea what I was signing. It is only now that my father who was with me has now said. It was he who brought the matter to the lawsers attention but they refused to acknoweledge him. He was there to support me

The solicitor would mot even acknowledge what I had said. It was if she was avoiding the question. She kept saying it was late and the judge wanted an answer. I was under a lot of

I have answered this question twice. Please be so kind as to reply using my fathrs email address which is
Likewise. I am sorry for my last response., It was the Final Hearing. I was given no paper work so the answerer is no to the E form. Is late in the afternoon and the solicitor and barrister were pushing for me to sign something. Thr barrister wrote something very quickly which I believe I signed not too sure. The ysaid the judges wanted to go home and was getting annoyed for the delay.
It was my father who brought up the subject after reading about it in a paper. It was he who kept telling the solicitor about my ex husband being a director on the family company and he gave his shares to his father and brothers. But the solicitor would not even speak to him. I know they heard what he said as they looked at him when ever he brought up the subject, The solicitor was back and forward across the corridor speaking to the other sides lawyer, it went on and on. At first my solicitor wanted me to accept £25000 as a settlement. My fathers kept telling me to say no every time they kept increasing the figure and I said no every time. My ex husband was and is a wealth man. He swore to me I would not get a penny of his money. I have a son and he is the Father. The final settlement I believe was 80% or there about.
Yes there were. My father went eith me every time I went to court. I am having difficult remembering all. But the final case is as I explained. I trusted my solicitor 100% and I now have my doubts as she always injored my father.
I answered this question. i am sorry for my errors.
No my father does not and nether did I. At the time I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown I had no idea of what was going on. It was only when my father stepped in. Even then they would tell him nothing. My husband then stopped paying the mortgage as he said I would not get a penny of hi.s money. My parents paid the mortgage to stop the property being taken back by the mortgage company.
At the final hearing I with my father my solicitor and a barrister.In a room across from where we were my husband and his solicitor. My two lawyers kept going across to the other side and come back with an offer from them. It started at I think £25000. This kept going on backwards and forwards. A couple of times we went into the court and out we came as I would not accept the officers. They finely offered 80.3% I think which I excepted. However there was also a brand new motorcycle that I owned which my lawyers would not acknowledge worth £25000+ which he had and also he sold his company shares to his father and brothers. He was a direct on the company several weeks before the hearing as my father checked and next thing he was not.
The company is still trading as S&P Brisley Ltd , Highfield Ind Estate Folkestone Tel XXXXXXXXXXXXX. I believe this company are the owner of all this trading estate. It has to be worth several millions. This company has the contract for all the authorities in Kent for the serving and maintenance of their vehicles. I know this as my father was at one time a county councillor on the Kent county council. He was the vice chairman of the property, supplies and servicing committee who awarded these contracts. He was responsible for the award. He was asked to visit my father in law who was the chairman of the company who wanted to who would get the contract. He said to my father your responsible for these and remember we are family now as at the time I was employed by the company.
He would have at least quarter share if not more. How much is the company worth. I do not know but it has to be in the millions.
It is my father who is encouraging me to seek action he is not well he has Parkinson's and he is a war pensioner as he career was in the military. He is 70 years of age. He is prepared to stand up in court and swear on oath what he knows.
My husband bullied me throughout our 11 year marriage. Our second son drowned in the bath. Our first son was still born and I was never forgiven. I was put through hell. My lawyers should have advised me about everything. But they did not. I had several meeting with my lawyer but there was never anything in writing given to me or just what I should say.
That is about it.
I did not see any money at all. The solicitor must have had it. I found a house so that must have beem paid for and apart from that I do not know. My solicitor did everything. At the time I was going through a very bad time. I had custdoy of my son and my ex husband continue to harras me.I am sory for this reply but that is how it happened. The reason I have come to you with my fathers support. Had it not been for him I would have got nothingTracey
The house is worth £124K I did not need a mortgage. I now realise the money must have been held by my solicitor from the sale of our bungalow.
I have to be honest I had no real idea what was going on. I have not seen any deeds to my property.
I must sound stupid but that is the truth
What has this got to do with my primary question.?
My husband was a director on a company during our marriage.
.I divorced him for cruelty. He gave his shares To his father and brothers as decided by his father to prevent me from getting part of his share in the company
This conservation has been going back and forward now for two days plus. Can I please have a definitive answer.
My solicitors failed to carry out my instructions by failing to put before the judge that my husband got rid of his shares so as to avoid me having part of them. My solicitor and the barrister should have told the judge. They did not.
I do believe there are circumstances when the six years have expired can be put aside. I have never seen the deeds to my property. I now have just received a bill from the legal aide people I owe them £500. I never received a penny from my husband although I was given 80%+ of total assists. Why at the end of all this I becomes the looser . It is quite obvious my lawyers were there for the benefit of their own.
The court procedure was in camera my father was not allowed in. He had no say at all. So… at the end of all this I am still the looser. My solicitor in real terms let me down. Would you agree.?
Are you saying I have no claim what so ever and that is it?
