Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are you both?-Did you cohabit immediately prior to the marriage, if so how long?-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?-What assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are your respective incomes?,
What is the value of the home and the outstanding mortgage?
Thanks for confirming. Despite the short marriage, if the home was used as the matrimonial home she would be entitled to seek a share of the property as it would now be considered a matrimonial asset despite it being acquired prior to the marriage. However, as the child resides with you there would be grounds to prevent any immediate sale of the property so that you can meet your son's accommodation needs until he reaches a certain age.
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
Just to make sure - a Form A has been issued and a hearing has been listed?
Thanks. You will need to file the Form E with the court and agree with her to exchange it simultaneously. After this you will need to consider her Form E and provide her a questionnaire of any further information and documents not disclosed and which are relevant and required.
You should chase them and should be agreeing a date if they cannot do 15 September
