LOCKED INTO ***** SEPRATED HUSBAND £12.000 HE IS NOT PAYING HIS HALF OF THE LOAN.CAN I DO ANYTHING?
Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. If the loan is joint and several liability and you are having to pay for him, you are entitled to recover the amount you pay on his behalf in the County Court. Under the Civil Liability (contribution) Act 1978 you can sue him for the payments you make on his behalf. Is £12k the outstanding balance? Kind regards AJ

but will this cost me money to do this?
Hi, Thank you. You may have to pay court fees (and solicitors costs, if you use a solicitor). You would be able to recover these if you successfully sue him in court. Does he have any assets or money?
