I received £21,000 and he received £42,000. I wrote in my letter to the conveyancing solicitor that he wanted it as a deposit for his new house. This is what he did use it for. I think his new house is worth £250,000. I imagine he will have still have it part mortgaged.
He earns £44,000 and i earn £5,000 plus welfare benefits. The children are 19 (not his), 10 and 8 (his).
He got the car (which i think was worth £7,000, he traded this in so it's value can be proved). He got most of the furniture...beds, mattresses, piano, w.machine - none of it was immense value but i had to replace it.
Out of my money i also had to give my Dad back £2,000 for work he had done on our house.
Goodness me....just to clarify.... even though we have been separated for 4.5 yrs, because we are still actually married our assets are seen as joint?
Is there a time frame on this as it may take me another 6mths or so to pluck up the courage.
Also, can i ask...what does 'in lieu' mean ?
And finally...he has a pension and i stopped paying into mine when i left work when the babies were born. Am i entitled to a bit of that too ?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX when i read this. He has scared and bullied me for so long, and i am not the woman i could have been. He laughed when we were living in the b&b and calls me mantally ill. The court has given him lots of child contact so i have to see him. I have been taking out wonga loans, using food banks etc. I am not interested in money but i would like my faith in fairness restored.
Thank you Clare, you provide a great service.
