Hello, my ex husband is in breach of a consent order made back in 2010, He owes the children maintenance money that he agreed he will pay fixed amount to each child. Last three years he has not paid them. I then contacted a solicitor in the area where he resides sending a polite reminder, he wrote back to my solicitor saying he is unable to pay the amount outstanding. In order to compensate me for non payment he is now willing to transfer his share of the matrimonial home which he owes 30% over to me. Unfortunately I am not working at the moment due to children commitments (one child with special needs) the mortgage company's policy will not allow me to be solely on the mortgage and therefore unable to transfer the deeds over on my name. I need secure paperwork done so that as and when I come to sell the property equity will be 100% mine. This will help me with the cost of my special needs son as I can not totally rely on their father my ex. I have been told by solicitors that the best option is to have consent order amended, not the cheapest option but the most guaranteed . I feel this is the best thing for me , even though financially this is not helping at the moment but will secure mine and both my children's future. It will also save money on hiring a private investigatior to find him if need be in the future. Regards ***** *****
Hi Clare i think may have replied to the wrong place on the site
Im in the uk, Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
He lives in Galway southern Ireland, escaped there so he didn't have to pay child maintenance through CSA, hence the reason I had it put in the consent order.
Yes Clare I would as I have not breached against the order made, would I have to attend court that's my only worry as I mentioned I have a child with special needs in order for me to change one day I have to make a lot of arrangements which doesn't come cheap. But if this the cheapest option and the quickest then it will have to be the case.
Does Neil Bhogal have to attend, obviously I can not speak on his behalf but as well as i know him I very much doubt he will.
Would you be able elaborate on the charges a little more, how much will it cost to prepare paperwork for it to be lodged into court, I need to expalin these details to the ex so i need to have clear understanding,also if you were to act on my behalf how much would that cost
