Hi Clare, yes there are children involved, an 11 year old boy and a girl who is 18 in September. My girlfriend doesn't have much recollection of legal agreements being made, but there was a verbal agreement between her and her ex about how the debts should be split - she would repay the £8000 other loans, and her ex was to pay everything else - hes now denying this
Hi Clare, hope you're ok. The decree absolute was 20/5/13, although she had left the property when they had separated some 14 months earlier. A solicitor was acting on her behalf. Reading through the last of the solicitors letters last night it appears that my girlfriends ex refused to consent to a " clean break " - if this is any help at this stage? It would appear that financial agreements were not made at the time of the divorce either. Thanks
Hi, no. At the moment he is trying to get her to pay half of the mortgage shortfall after the sale, but there is joint accounts and loans that are currently not being paid by either party aswell as the secured loan. I assumed that any secured loan would be paid off on the sale of the property but this doesn't appear to have happenned.
To the best of my knowledge she was asked by her ex to borrow £8000 to repay her ex's previous £7000 loan and raise a further £1000. This is in her sole name.The £1000 has long gone.
Hi my girlfriends sole name debts are £8000, joint name debts are £15000 secured loan, £1000 approx overdraft, £1000 approx windows, shortfall on mortgage sale £5000, total £30,000
My girlfriend brings home £74 a week and gets tax credits £60 a week and on the odd rare occassion gets £80 maintenance each month, although I don't think shes had that for about 6 months. Her ex works as an agency worker but allegedly doesn't get much regular work so we're not sure of his earnings - probably around minimum wage though I would guess
Hi Clare, thankyou very much for this information, we are both very happy with the response and feel now that we know exactly what we need to do to progress the situation . Thanks again, happy customers. Have a great weekend !
