Is it possible for me and my Ex-husband to go to court over a financial issue - eg. do the family courts have an equivalent to the "small claims court" that businesses us? We were divorced 3 years ago and the amount is approx £12k. He is refusing to discuss it or find a solution so this is the only option left.
How does a late claim work, is there a criteria for it?
In a nutshell, 3yrs ago we divorced and I had to remortgage to pay him £70k but he wanted another £10k, this was all in Consent Order. 3 months after he left I lost my job thru sickness, and nothing has changed. I have no capacity to pay and doubt I will for many years. I''ve been able to keep my head above water with my 9yr old, but only just. Despite this my ex constantly hassles me about money, even though he hasn''t paid a penny towards our child for over 18 months. (I know that''s separate issue to this but he doesn''t get the irony). It''s stressing me out beyond belief and, as he will never ever negotiate I''ve suggested that we could get this in front of judge and enable me to plead my case.
