I am currently on holiday in Ghana but I am based in the UK. My ex and I were married for 21 years and separated firstly for 6months in 2006 and for two years from 2009 to 2011. I bought the right to buy property in 1995, he wrote to the mortgage lenders and my solicitors stating that he was giving up all rights to the property, before I purchased the property, however we were still married and living together. I bought the second property in 2003, and have been paying the mortgage on my own since. We divorced in 2012 when I received the degree absolute. He moved out in 2009 and filed for divorce.
No, he said he was studying law so I had to work to pay the mortgage and bills. He started giving me £150 a week towards the shopping from 2008- Jan 2010, he never contributed to the household bills. He opened a bogus law firm and was convicted for practising law without a license,I recently discovered that he has invested £27000 in an ISA account with the Halifax. I have no other asset and no savings apart from the two properties. I am the only one who takes care of my kids. I know that he used our joint names to acquire a property which I reported to a solicitor, I asked him to sell it, not wanting to get him in trouble with the law. He pretended to sell it and used an alias to buy the property back.
