My situation is that I wss not married to my ex but had 2 sons by him. In September 2011, the court judged that he was entitled to 30% of my house - £37,500 which I paid to his solicitor before Christmas 2011.
He is on benefits and was on legal aid so I had to pay all his court costs as I lost! They totalled £50,000!
£50,000 plus £37,500 plus my own legal costs!
However he has never paid any maintenance for the two boys and I am now struggling financially as a result of having to remortgage to pay all my debts!
Any advice on what I should do to get him to pay towards his children. I am back in court next week again for contact hearing although he is not allowed to see children - again he has legal aid to contest this but children dont want to see him as he is an alcoholic and they have seen him at his worst drunk!
Can I ask the Judge? Should I write to his solicitor? I self represent as I have no money for more legal fees.
