Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.

What savings are there and what income do you each have?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

He says we have no savings ,he has a good pension fund also we own an Apartment in Turkey which we rent out so receive around 6000 sterling from that each year. He has a very well paid job here, but says he has debts. I have no income.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.

Do you intend to return to the UK?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I think i will have to. Unless i can get a job here and a home. I am 53 years old so not sure that it will be possible to find something here, that will afford me to do these things. Plus my family are in the UK.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.

Is his pension based in the Uk?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.

It is unlikely that there is any action that you can take where you are.
If you return to the UK you can issue a Divorce Petition and force him to disclose his financial position.
You are entitled to 50% of any assets, a Pension Sharing Order in respect of his pension - and possibly spouse maintenance as well
Please ask if you need further details
