Hi, I suspect that her partners house will not be sold until the children are 18 because it is their main residence, whereas in your case it appears that yours stay mainly with their mum so different rules apply. A word of warning too, backing up what could happen if your ex pushes for it. I left my home with my teenagers and moved into rented accomodation, ex promptly moved his girlfriend and her son in. 2 and 1/2 years later the court told him he had to move out and let me and the children have our home back, we needed a 3 bedroomed house, he was living in ours. The judge called it a no brainer. Id get this tied up while she is happily ensconced in her new life
Happe: I really do want to get this signed-off asap - and I believe that my ex actually does.
Funnily enough, only this evening I received texts from my ex asking if I had seen a solicitor in order to ''make her an offer'' (she has once more stated she wants 50/50 equity split and no share of my pensions).
I replied along the lines of that I didn''t think my any solicitor I appoint could act on our behalf. I did remind her that we do have the Consent Order (bought via wikivorce), and that maybe she should complete the forms - seeing as were in agreement of what''s wanted so that we can submit the forms.
Sounds as if you get on ok enough why don''t you arrange to go to mediation.
Where you can discuss the finances and get a mediation agreement and then get it put onto the Consent Order and all signed off by both parties.
Sounds to me as if you are only a couple of sit downs away from conclusion of this.
All the best
