I haven''t yet filed for my degree Absolute as I have been waiting for the Consent Order to be rubber stamped. My solicitor is the slowest in the world...this has been going on for over two years and my consent order is still sitting with STBXH solicitor.
I paid XH £42,750 last November for his share of the house. There are no other wranglings. He has new house, partner and child, No other negotiations to be done.
My sister has recently had a windfall and has offered to pay off my mortgage for me, and me to repay interest free which is fab. My question is...if my sister pays off my debt (ie mortgage) could XH (if he got window it) ask for half of the gift?
Many apologies if it is a daft question. Sometimes divorce feels like it''s a game of smoke and mirrors....
I am so frustrated at having my financial life on hold. Everything is very much in XH''s favour at the moment...overseas hols, pedigree dogs and such like. I''m sure we''ve all been there. Childcare over the hols is costing a fortune as I am a full-time student and therefore don''t receive any help from tax credits. Getting rid of the mortgage would have been such a help.
Anyway, frustrated rant over! Back to squirrelling money away in secret...sigh.
