Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
How long have they lived together and are there any children involved
What assets are there
I am sorry - we have to deal with our list in order and sadly every time you add a comment it drops to the bottom o f the list and I have to work down to it again
Are you aware that a phone call costs more?
If your sister wishes to end her marriage then there is no reason why she should not do so.
If her ex tries to hide money from the businesses then there are sufficient assets that the family court can simply give her a much larger share of the remaining assets - and they will do so.
Of more concern is her physical safety if she is alone with him so it is important that she takes steps sooner rather than later.
There are ample assets to secure her future and there is no reason for delay
I am not sure what further information you need but if you let me know I will try and deal with it.
If you confirm that you are happy with the extra that the site charges for a phone call then I will accept that request
Again I am sorry - we are all working lawyers with ordinary lives and I consider it too late at this time to call you.
However I will happily call you in the morning
The way forward is for your sister to find a family law specialist using the website here
She needs to find a solicitor she can trust and work with - and if that means visiting two or three to start with then that is not unreasonable - she must feel confident in the relationship.
She may also wish to consider using a Collaborative lawyer
Although from what you have said this would not be appropriate as it is unlikely that her ex will be reasonable
For the same reason Family Mediation
is not a viable option - although it is possible that she will need to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment meeting IF a financial applictaion needs to be made.
If it is safe for her to remain in the matrimonial home then she can start divorce proceedings based on her husband's Unreasonable Behaviour
You can read more about the divorce process here
However if he has or does make threats against her then she can apply for an Order allowing her to remain in the Matrimonial Home and Excluding him.
Do you wish me to call you now?
