I''m in one of those situations where my stbx is absolutely dragging her heels over our divorce. Nearly four years since separation and counting...
Some background: my stbx and I had a successful mediation session over three months ago, from which a draft Consent Order emerged that both sides were in agreement over. Her side agreed to draw up the final order and again confirmed they had no issues.
Unfortunately, we haven''t heard from them in over two months, despite our (several) requests for an update.
Since the mediation session, my new partner and I have had an opportunity to buy a property of our own together. We''re now at the stage where we can instruct a solicitor for the purchase (it hasn''t been bought yet).
My question is: if my stbx discovered that my partner and I are buying/had bought a property before the consent order went through, would she be able to lay claim to some part of the value of the property?
