Hi If we are agreeing on a divorce and my husband wont agree to sell our jointly owned home, can I enforce this? The alternative is that I have to stay here under extreme miserable circumstances but he states he/we can afford to?? He is v secretive with money and has always refused a joint account so I have little of my own but he has the majority tied up in shares with spread bet companies.......help! Thanks
Can I ask please, as he has invested our shares in what I term high risk spreads, can I get his accounts frozen before he loses the lot?
He is a very difficult chauvinistic man and I work full time and he gives me nothing regularly but dos pay the bills...he will NOT have a joint account and goes out of his way to tell me we have very little but goes on plenty of expensive golf breaks....he has 'retired' but trades markets from home....
We have no mortgage, it is in joint names and just valued at £730,000.
Does this help?
Also I work from home so in the interim, I have to stay here for that purpose plus have dogs which I could have a problem to move to rented accomodation....
Value of shares is approx £500,000 but this fluctuates and are largely in spread accounts though some with a broker account and largely in his name apart from one account in my name (for tax purposes? and value of £139,000........) He is also elusive as to where they are exactly as they move around alot. He has several accounts and also runs a gambling book with large amounts >10-15k transactions coming in and out based on football and other sporting spreadbetting.......so always difficult to get a clear answer at any one time.
It hasnt.....I want one and so does he but, he will not agree to selling the house and as the bulk of the money is invested in this, I cannot move on.
Can you reply promptly please with suggestions as to how I can actually move forwards. I have given you as much information as I can.
Thanks for that - but if I issued a petition he will ignore it - literally ... can he be made to or forced to engage with it.
He is determined he will not agree to selling the house and has told me he will 'play dirty' regards ***** ***** money..and as he does have sole control of it, I want to know how I can protect my asetts which after 25 years are half mine ....
He wants to divorce but to him this means I leave the home if I wish as he is quite happy to stay in the current position leading his own life;
I dont - and want to separate and make a new life.
Please can you advise
