My X and I have lived in 2 homes together as husband and wife. My name was not on either mortgage (i was studying so could not get a mortgage but worked part time and contributed to the homes financially). Both properties have since been sold and she has now bought a house with her new partner. They are due to have a baby any day and so she is currently on maternity leave.She has told me that all the equity from both homes has now been spent and she has none of the money left. I am about to start divorce proceedings and will be looking for a 40% share from the equity of both homes. Can I be ordered to wait for this money (as she claims she does not have it) or will she be ordered to obtain it somehow. We have a 3 year old daughter who lives with my X, who I pay mainenance for.
Thanks in advance for your feedback
