I am now divorced. The Absolute came through on June 3rd.
At the moment the Legal Charge and Consent Order are being done by my solicitor. The Legal Charge is so that I do not have to pay Capital Gains Tax when the house is sold. My name is being removed from the mortgage and the house deeds.
My ex husband has asked me to pay for half his legal fees to have my name removed, as it is in my benifit to do so. I did say at the time that I would help towards it, but in hindsight, I am having to pay my own solicitor to act on my behalf so I don't see why I should pay half of his too.
Seeing as he had to pay the Mortgage company a fee, I will contribute half of that fee only.
