I have been divorced just over 2 years. We sold the house paid the debts off and split the remaining money 50-50 when we decided to split and waited for the 2 yr "irreconsilably differences" option. We both went into rented accomadation. When the house was sold My ex had to have housing benefit to top up her income. We agreed on maintainance and access. I have my son over 170 nights of the year , pay more than I am told I need to via the CSA website but do not pay on spousal maintainance. My ex has recently moved in with her new partner. I am currently buying a new property with my new partner but because when taking advice from a solicitor at the time of my divorce, the fact we had already sold up and split the only asset at the time I was told that I did not neeed representation as everything was simple and therefore there was no Consent Order agreed .We are now worried the my ex my have rights to our new property is this true?
Elmo. Depends if you got a Clean Break settlement or not and depends what your ex is like as a person. I think you got away with a good deal. Not all women are total bitches and she may let you get on with your life.
But in all fairness your divorce was a long time ago and to be honest you cant spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder. I would get on and buy your new home and get on with your life. If she try's it on then so be it. Fight your corner. You cant be expected to put your life on hold because of your ex now can you. All the best for your new partner and hope it all turns out right.
