I separated from my wife late '99 after 30 years of marriage. It was amicable and she did not fight against me leaving. I gave her the house and £100 per week. I see her every 4 weeks when I visit our youngest Son (now 22) and we get on fine - she usually has a few jobs for me, which I do and advise her in any way I can. Out of the settlement of the sale of the family home in 2000, she bought herself a flat. Last year I agreed a financial settlement of a cash sum to include everything, which she has now had, so I no longer need to support her in any way.
I have been living with my new partner since 2000 and we want to get married. Divorce has not been an issue, but obviously prevents us re-marrying (we both need one from our respective spouses). My partner also has a Financial Agreement signed between herself and her husband.
Does anyone see any problems in me using one of the quick On-Line divorce sites?
I don't see any great problems getting a divorce - I assume your wife will be amicable and co-operative in the process. In which case you will save money (vs using solicitors) by using a DIY divorce site such as Divorce Online (their link is listed on front page of our Top Divorce Sites section).
What form is your financial agreement? Is it formally signed?
You may want to check that the agreement is water tight and that she could not come back for more later (even though you say she is content with current agreement).
Thanks for the reply - the form is signed, dated and witnessed! It was done before the money was handed over, though there was a time stated - I think within 6 month. That time has lapsed and all the money was paid over. I did wonder whether I should obtain a signed receipt just to make it bullet-proof.
I see no reason why after all these years she would object - my intention was to warn her of the arrival of any documents just so it did not look cold-hearted.
