I was divorced seven years ago and all was finalised shortly afterwards through the courts. My husband presented a set of figures from his self employed business. He left the house having added £25,000 to the mortgage, and this was transferred to my name from his as he no longer paid for the mortgage. He paid £600 per month for our 3 children ( now 18, 15 and 13 ). As one is disabled I am unable to work full time and work 23 hours per week. Money gone down to £400 as son turned 18 in May but still at College. ( Court agreed ). I am no longer able to pay the mortgage and am losing the house. Despite ex''s figures and books he now owns 5 properties value excess of 2 million and is applying to have a swimming pool in his main house ( £575,000 six years ago plus sizeable extension since ) Where can I approach to have him investigated without him finding out that I''ve instigated the search ''splease? I know that he uses his wife''s ( she works 3 days as a rep and has one son under 18 )and my children''s accounts to hide money )Please help as I feel I''m letting the children down
Hi Anna. Becuase of the long time now since the divorce, I doubt that you could do much. I expect that its all in his wifes name anyway. I think you would be wasting yr money trying to get what you are owed.
The CSA can overrule a court order after one year of it being issued. If you think you would be better off this way then you could apply to the CSA. If your ex is twisting his figures then you would be able to ask them to investigate how he can afford such luxuries on a small income, but they don''t have a very good track record at nailing nrps who know a few tricks.
