The Decree Absolute was issued in September 2013 following a petition posted by my ex in April 2013. I sought legal advice at the time, which was basically not to waste money challenging the petition, but the issue of the tenancy wasn't raised by anyone and so slipped through the net. i was, during this period ,also dealing with my mother being terminally ill and so was not focused on the divorce situation.
I hope this helps but please ask any question and i will answer the best i can.
Yes i have asked this on many occasions including during mediation sessions earlier this year, but she refuses to do so and is using it as a 'ransom' (if that is the correct term) until such time as i have paid monies she is claiming from me.
This is perhaps where it gets a little complex!
Following mediation earlier this year i began paying regular maintenance
of £50 per week based on a full financial disclosure. My ex then calculated what she believed i owed her in back dated payments (less the total of two cash sums i had previously paid) from the point at which she had left me. I have not questioned whether she is in fact even entitled to do this but have in a very non- comital way said that i will pay but as and when i have spare funds - not to a time scale. I agreed hopefully in the interests of good relations.
This is child maintenance. No official claim was lodged at the time of separation or divorce it was an issue resolved during mediation earlier this year.
thank you for your answer, i would just like to further ask how i would proceed with the Transfer of Tenancy application. Would i require a solicitor to complete the form or if not how would i word the request?
