We were not married. When we split up he told me that I had no claim on the horses & I believed him. It has only recently came to light that the horses are owned by both of us. I was entitled to nothing because we were not married & the morgage was in his as we're the cars etc. I was only a common law wife. There are 2 young horses that I bred that are out on loan that are jointly owned. I want them returned or my share of the sale? Can you please tell me if I have any claim on the broodmares. They were not bred by myself and ex they were bought in for the stud. One of them was a swap for something that was bred by me & owned jointly, Do I have a claim on her? I when the business was opened it had to go in my ex name because I had been made bankrupt. So the bank account for Carriden Sports Horses was in his name but I was second signature on the account. I wrote cheques, payed for feed, bought mares from Germany, etc all from this bank account. I really need more clarification from you. The answer given has not helped me. Sorry.
I'm sorry but I don't know what this means. I was thrown out the house in November 2013 with the clothes on my back. There are to young horses that I bred that he put out on loan & made verble agreements with the loanees about buying them etc. Both of these horses are in joint names & I was never consulted about what he had done. There are 3 broodmares. They were out on loan & I only found out that he has sold them. 1 broodmare was a straight swap for a young colt I bred but was jointly owned. The other 2 I bought in from Germany. I ran the business on my own all Stewart did was open it in his name to get me started. I worked in the stud for 7 & a half years & never received an income from it even although I was put through the books as making a monthly salary. I'm disabled & my disability money was contrabuted to the household. It was even paid in to his bank account. Yes I know I have a claim on the jointly owned horses but what about the broodmares? Also do I have the right to go & get the 2 young horses? He also let them move off the property without passports, which I know to be illegal. I'm very distressed about all of this & I need to know my rights. I have had no say on anything regards ***** ***** these horses. Plus he is selling them well under value.
Yes. But he has made me believe for so long because he financed the business I had no claim on it what's soever. Yes he did finance it but I ran the business in every shape & form. I'm more upset about the fact that he's sold them as they ment the world to me.
Can I please get an answer & how best should I go forward?
