My ex-husband and I are going through a financial settlement.
We have been to court for an FDA, and have FDR date for 1st July, but have been trying to negotiate before going back to court.
I had to sell my car (owned by me) in order to keep myself financially afloat as he stopped paying mortgage September 2013 and has left me with full financial responsibility of the mortgage and household bills.
Unfortunately the account that payment for the car went into was attached to our joint account (which should have been frozen but the bank failed to complete this process) so he has seen this and transferred the full £18,000 which I received in payment for the car into his personal account.
My solicitor contacted his solicitor and his solicitor said that he is going to get the money from his client and hold it in their account until financial settlement has been reached. He is saying that his client bought the car anyway and it is a matrimonial asset. He did not buy the car and the car was always mine. I have been left without any money or a car now.
How do I stand on this issue. He has effectively stolen my money. We were married for 13 weeks and he left me after I miscarried and is living with his sisters friend who is now expecting his baby.
He has since bought a Range Rover Evoque which he has registered in her name but he is paying the finance on this vehicle with Range Rover Finance. Can I have a claim on this vehicle since he has taken the money from my vehicle.
