She has a solicitor, whom she describes as useless! I think the divorce is only in early stages. My friend is so stressed she is not capable of being proactive. I am trying to get information for her to help her along.
Can I try to pin her down for information and get back to you?
Yes he is using a solicitor. He filed for divorce in January apparently. All that has happened since is negotiating. Since leaving home in July 2013, he has bought a flat and is on his third car. Apparently, he has nothing left from his two substantial pensions now, and has asked her to pay maintenance, which she has refused. She feels that he has probably transferred money elsewhere. She is paying the mortgage herself and part-supporting her daughter and grandson who live with her. She has just completed a form detailing her income and assets for his solicitors. She does not seem to understand that, though HE has bought a flat and a car, they are still married as yet, so she is still entitled to a share of what he has taken and now owns, and vice versa. Or am I wrong?
Thank you - that is helpful. If she cannot change the locks, can she get an injunction to stop him coming to the house when there is no-one else present - given his habit of removing things?
