Have a good friend at work who has a problem as follows.
Her mother married a tunisian man 16 years ago, a year after her father died.
House was bought and paid for by her mother before this marriage.
Took out loans in her name to pay off his debts which she is still paying, also paying a loan that he took out in his name.
Said husband has now left and is saying that he is entitled to a share of the house and money.
Can anyone shed any light on this as she and her mother are both worried about this.
there is roughly a twenty year age gap ( him younger)
and the marriage was british, also he has not worked much, and tried to live of state but had not paid enough stamp to claim.
