Am worrying myself into a real state with the following and hope someone out there can help.
Background is - me divorcing stbx as he committed adultery with my best friend. Married 30yrs. Have got nisi and very soon have first appointment FDR. form E's exchanged. Stbx living with xbf in rented accomm. and me still in FH.
Problem is family car bought 7 yrs ago from joint account but used 99% of time by me only as he has always owned high powered bike (also bought from joint account). Car insurance is due just after 1st appointment and is in his name as Registered Keeper and legal owner but with me as second named driver. I have never had my own car or insurance on a vehicle in 27 years of driving. Stbx said he will not re-inusre car as he wants it sold (I am willing to pay annual premium). This will leave me with no vehicle to get to work. The car is worth £5.5k (I have checked this) on second hand market but he has said on his form E it is £8k. This car is worth more to me than half the money it would get by selling as it has low mileage as I have only driven fairly local in it and the engine and body work and still good where as any other car I buy for say £2.5k is likely to have high mileage and need work doing.
I understand he cannot force me to sell car as I cannot force him to sell bike just yet but this leaves me with a car on the drive and not being able to get to work.
Sorry to ramble on but am tying myself in knots - have asked sol but she says this is minor issue!
Can anyone tell me if I call insurance people will they take payment from me or as stbx is not living here is current insurance already invalid?
