Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How much was the loan and how was it dealt with within the financial side of the divorce
Was that agreement referred to in the Court Order at all?
Sorry - does the Order refer to the loan being paid off at all?
That is excellent news.
have you actually filed your defence?
You have filed a defence - but in fact you now need to concentrate this on the fact that your former father in law provided a figure he would accept in full and final settlement.
You shoudl also write to your ex (and copy her father) that you will be asking the court to join her into the action since this was a joint debt
The Tax issue is irrelevant to you - and no you do not have to pay - he accepted a sum in full and final settlement and he cannot take the matter any further
Please ask if you need further details
It was a joint and several debt - and yes you were entitled to act on the basis that this debt had been settled in full
