Could anyone please guide me on my final hearing matter from following brief information.
I married my wife who came on dependent visa in UK and after one year and 8 months she left family home.She is living with her boy friend now.My divorce matter(filed in 2006) is listed for final hearing in 2 weeks time.
I had bought a flat in in which we lived together for 5 months only after which she left.
She has been delaying the whole process for the last two years and has once been penalized by the court also to pay for th costs of hearing.
till date she has changed 3 solicitors and everytime she leaves because she doesnt pay solicitors for their services.
She has been bafling the immigration as well to get a permanent status in the country and using all means.
Could anybody please tell if by any chance she can obstruct the final hearing and if there's any chance that court may not come to a decision in the final hearing.
Importnat thing is she has not contributed anything towards purchase of flat.
Under these circumstances will she be liable to take share from the property.
It is perfectly possible for her to delay the final hearing.
Divorce cases can drag on for years if one party is uncooperative. It is very easy to wait til a few days before a hearing and then claim to be ill. It can then take the court several months to re-schedule the hearing.
However, once the final hearing takes place then a ruling will be made. So she cannot avoid an outcome forever
It makes little difference that she paid nothing towards the flat or paid none of the mortgage.
She will still have a claim to the increase in equity of the property from the time it was purchased til the date fo the final hearing.
Because in UK law she was a partner in the marriage and deserves a fair share of the fruits of the marriage.
Hi Thanks for your reply ..she is from india...she should be sent back ..but she is baffling the immigration authorities on the grounds of divorce preceedings aand on the other hand delaying the divorce matter.
