Customer Question

Been married 6 months. My husband had an affair. During this time I bought a static caravan holiday home. I paid for it but put it in joint names. But he won't let me sell it. He has a car in his name which I contributed £8k to which I know I won't see either. Where do I stand

Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you
Please may I ask - are you considering divorce in the future?
Kind Regards
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Can't until a year.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 2 years ago.
At that point?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not necessarily so. But at some point. His behavior is too unreasonable but I know he will take everything from me. If he doesn't he will trash it to make it so I cannot sell it.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 2 years ago.
I am very sorry to hear that.
If you do divorce then you will be able to deal with the issue of the matrimonial finances. With such a short marriage you should be able to walk away with close to what you put in to the marriage.
Mediation will try and help you resolve the finance issues but if he won't agree - you can make an application to the court to seek the caravan be transferred into your sole name and also a settlement in respect of the car. All assets are liabilities are technically included in this process - including his.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Kind Regards

Is it too late to protect other assets. He would sign a prenup.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 2 years ago.
Would he still sign an agreement now to restrict his future claims?
