I am petitioning for unreasonable behaviour due to the respondent's constant habitual drinking and consequent not working which has progressively got worse over the last five years. I have already transferred the house deeds into my sole name and paid an amount to him which he signed, accepted and moved out three months ago. Would he be able to request for further payment with regard to the transfer of deeds at a later date?
Hi there and thanks for your reply. He received a letter from my solicitor advising him to seek independent legal advice, which he chose not to, his friend (the local publican!) witnessed the signatures of both of us. He did make a vague comment regarding the amount but when we bought our first house, my uncle 'gifted' us £40,000 and at a later date another £20,000 to be taken from my inheritance on his subsequent demise. These amounts were not split 50/50 in the amount paid to my x2b but 'ignored' With that in mind, if he applied for a property adjustment, may a court find in favour of me forking out more money for him?
If there was no Consent Order or imposed order settling the finances each party may still make a claim against each other, although there is a rule which prevents someone who is remarried applying for ancillary relief.
