The £54000 was from the sale of the house. I am 55 and he is 58. We separated nearly five years ago. I started divorce proceedings in March 2010.
Can someone else help me if Clare is not available?
Thank you for your reply. The P60 will not show his last pay in July. I did think about the form E but was hoping to cut that out as we had come to an agreement. Unfortunately I think this has been planned all along. Why propose an agreement when on paper it looks like you have virtually nothing to live on? He is living with his partner who owns a big house and they both gave up their lecturer jobs to run this burger van. I understand they have students lodging.
Should he not have to complete the capital part of the statement of information? He owns the burger van and bought a truck. His liabilities still show £1000.
Last Feb we went to court because the Judge was not happy about a 2 year cut off period for maintenance. She told my husband to contact his pension company and copy me in. She also said "you can't just cut off like that after 30 years" Some months later he offered me a lump sum which would include an extra year of maintenance. I accepted but then "due to a change in circumstances" he wanted to change back to monthly payments. In July I was told he had left the college and had started the burger van. Once I received information from the pension company as to how much I could expect to receive I came to an agreement for the maintenance to continue until he is 60.
Is his solicitor correct in assuring me that whatever goes on the form will not change our agreement? Surely if it looks like he earns a pittance (which I don't believe) the Judge could change things. Is it acceptable to write to the Judge giving some background information?
I am also aware (from my son) that my husband received a lump sum when he left but this has never been declared.
