Finally got everything sorted yesterday at Final Hearing...well actually didn''t even get before the judge!
Saw the smug b****** chatting to his barrister as I walked into the court building, I don''t think he had such a big smile when he left!
He was still refusing any maintenance for me even though his barrister told him from the off he would be looking at a joint lives order. So finally he agreed to sign over both properties, minimal CM for two years and me left with the debt and legal costs. I really didn''t want to face the prospect of him disappearing over the horizon and me chasing him for non-payment of maint....remains to be seen if he does actually pay the 400 a month for daughter.
I would love to have seen the look on Madam''s face when he returned to her and told her she wouldn''t be strutting around our house in Spain or the one here in UK.
So now the race is on to sell one of the houses as quick as possible so that my daughters and I can get some security in our lives again.
It''s going to take some time yet before I can wake up without worrying myself sick
Sting, a bit of a newbie on here, and hope you don''t mind my popping in, but wanted to say congrats also, and also to say thanks! You actually brought a smile to my face: sleep deprived at mo, but posts like yours give me - just starting out and so struggling as a LIP - hope and inspiration. I hope I get my stbx face to look like yours did!!!!. Well done, it''s a hard battle for all of us, it seems. Anyway, forgive me for popping in here. But posts like yours keep me afloat at the moment so just wanted to say that. Cheers. Best of luck with the rest of it.
