On the basis that the wedding was legal in Thailand she is entitled to get a divorce in the UK. The starting point for the court will be that any assets would be shared on a 50-50 basis - that said it was a short-meduim length relationship and the court will consider both your needs and requirements. The fact that you are disabled will be something that the court can consider. I would not give her any more money, instruct a solicitor and get divorced. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.

l think you have misunderstood the question, maybe my fault.The house land cars shop farm and household contents are all in Thailand.All l have here is a 1 bedroom flat.l have all the bank statements for moneys l invested in Thailand and the house and shop are occupied by her family.The legal contract to lease me the property there has been stolen from me by her.
