I just registered here and was looking for a bit of information please, if anyone can help.
I entered into a debt arrangement scheme with my husband about 8 months ago and things are generally no better. I pay everything and we have been living apart during this time. I am at the stage i cannot keep going financially. i entered into it with him as i was told they might come after me as i was his wife so i did. he has earned any income during this time. i really have given it my best and have thought about this a lot.
if we were to separate/divorce, is it possible for my husband to register himself bankrupt and would this affect me also. I am aware this is a huge step but have been so miserable for the past few years i need to start thinking about myself and my children as i am their sole carer
any advice would be great, i do plan to call the company that i have the DAS with soon
You really need legal advice from a family solicitor. In Scotland there aren''t enough cases examining the relationship between sequestration and financial provision on divorce to provide much guidance. If your income is less than £25k you will be entitled to legal aid or there are law clinics at Edinburgh and Strathclyde Universities that may be able to help.
