..........that is my seemingly neverending divorce process. I will keep the details to a minimum as have been over them through my mind constantly for the last 23 months
We were married for 1 year (together for 7 on and off) with 2 children (a son (7) together and a son (11)from her previous relationship) and came home from work one day to find she had left taking belongings (including children and dog) with divorce petition on the doorstep. This was never discussed before and her hapiness in the marriage was never a question (had to be someone else involved!) This was nearly 2 years ago and we are not yet at the Decree Nisi stage due to holdups incurred by her/solicitors (and she is the one who wanted to rush for a divorce!!).
Where do I stand in terms of financial split? She moved out and is living in financed rented accommodation where she works so she and the children at least have a roof over their heads. House was in my name but she has been through Land Registry to protect her rights on this. I have been paying maintenance for my son since they left and see him every other weekend (would love it to be more though!). I am basically looking for light at the end of a seemingly very long tunnel
"that leads to your door will never disappear I've seen that road before. It always leads me here. Leads me to you door" Showing my age now ha ha.
Not a legal expert plenty on here though. I reckon that becuase you have a short marriage that this will go in your favour. From what I have heard that with a short marriage you come out with what you went in with. That means if the house was in your name before then you should have a major chunk of it if not all. But you have children and that goes against you in a financial way. Chris.
