Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are you both?-How long were you married for?
-Have either of you remarried?
-Was there a court approved financial settlement as part of the divorce, if so what are the terms?-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?-What is the value of the property, and what is the outstanding mortgage?-Who is now living in the property?-Whose name is ***** ***** in?-What other assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are your respective incomes?
Thanks for confirming. As you have remarried you would be entitled to no more than 50% of the equity in the home. Given the medium length marriage and the long separation, it is unlikely that the court will agree to focus only on contributions and will look at both your needs. Given that he has not remarried is still able to pursue a financial relief claim against you in respect of matrimonial assets.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
