Hi Clare, the retained money was never paid due to a warranty claim made by the purchasers, I had to go to arbitration at additional cost of £20 to attempt some redress.
I am fully aware of potential Barder events and my understanding is that to attempt to set aside the original consent order will be a monumental task and a huge cost, money I simply do not have. My concern is that my ex agreed at mediation a reduced settlement which I am due to pay end of this month, I would not sign the revised consent order as the last page was asking for trouble. A sentence like "I am signing this on the full understanding that should I fail to carry out the actions and pay the said money I will be in contempt of court and liable to go to prison". I sent a markup back to the lawyer, asking them to remove the offensive sentence and the next thing I know they have issued proceedings to enforce the original consent order.
Im genuinely worried that I could end up serving a small custodial sentence for something I simply cannot do - i.e pay monies I do not have. If this happens I loose my job (I'm a CEO) and any possibility of payment of maintenance as I will be unemployable due to criminal conviction.
I need to know what should I do, I have files and files of cases where I have researched and I am a firm believer that its a good old "do a deal" but Im afraid its now a personal matter to punish me further.
Sorry I have gone on.......
Also I have another question bout phone tapping.... How do I submit it?
