we were married so we opened each other's mail and we knew each other's accounts.
some of these accounts I opened myself the same time he opened his to take advantage of the good rate.
What are my alternatives?
I realise that my question is actually the following.
Knowing that my husband will not cooperate no matter what letters etc I write what is the right strategic action in terms of legal actions !
What are teh powers of the court?
I know in greece the court can order that he oopens these accounts since I know sort codes and account numbers and also there is no bankruptcy or they are not offshore accounts etc. Just standard uk accounts.
I also know because i work in banks that it is a regulatory requirement for the banks to keep all details of these accounts for 6 years so he can't claim these records etc don't exist or he can't get them.
I am trying to udnerstand what are the powers of the courts in UK.
Do they have sijmilar powers or is it in reality that there is no way to force someone to disclose accounts if he doesn't do so himself.
In essence, I suspect that my husband having had cllose friends and family to advise him they told him that there is nothing i can do if he decides not to disclose these heavy in savings accounts.
So he didn't disclose them and he wont' unless there is serious arm twisting..
It is a lot of money , almost same as teh equity in the matrimonial home. He was the saver whiile I was naturally paying and covering needs and shopping and furnishing our place etc..
Also low mortgage rate meant he was putting savings elsewhere rather than paying mortgage.
