Apologies for the delay. Something went wrong with the system last night.Our house is a farm and all the property and the business is in joint names. We own it outright and bought it in 2000 Value £950,000
The other assets are another piece of land ( which there is a dispute over ownership.) We originally bought the ground in 2003 with my mother i law as a third partner. In 2006 we bought her out for £10,000 plus a gift of the the rest of the value of her third of the ground which totalled £22000. The land was then in our joint names. I t has come to light that the family solicitor never did the transfer at the Land Registry and my husband is disputing the ownership even though all three of us signed the document and the cheque for £10,000. He has had a valuation of this land done which is £167000 but is incorrect and undervalued and I have appealed this. (Should be nearer to £280000) There is a court hearing tabled for 31st December for judge to decide on the ownership evidence. and the value. The judge will then set another date to decide on the financial settlement.
I first applied for a divorce last October and there have been 2 hearings so far one in July and one in September to try and get an agreement with my husband but he refuses to consider any of my offers.
We also have money invested in a joint life bond (since 2001) of £13000 and a loan to my husband's brother from this bond of £54000 has been repaid to my husband only.
My husband is disputing all of this as joint asset because he paid for the ground originally from a property he owned before we met (We met in 1995 and married in 1999)
We have one son who is 16 years old and still in full time education doing A levels
My husband tells me I am lazy and a thieving robbing b---ch. He tells me I am stupid and thick and am disliked by everyone in the neighbourhood. Unfortunately he has told a number of people in the area various things about our finances and that I own nothing and deserve nothing as he was the one who paid for the ground in 2000. He is insulting on a very regular basis and he does the same to our son at times..
I am finding it very difficult to live in the same house as him and to carry on being a business partner. I wondered if I could appeal to the court to get this speeded up
Thanks for any help you can give. Emotionally I feel at breaking point
You have been most helpful. My husband does have another place to live so I will try for the occupation order and also look up some local support. If I don't feel so alone it will get me through.
