Hello! will try to keep this as simple as possible.
My partner and her ex husband had an agreement which involved her having the home/mortgage signed over to her and him paying a sum each month for the children. He never put in an appearance at court despite numerous letters, and eventually the Judge issued an order signing over the house to her. She took on the mortgage and his name was removed from the deeds. This took place in 2006. He didn''t pay any maintenance for the children and my partner didn''t take any action on this. He has now resurfaced having remarried and having a new house, saying that he was mentally ill (he''s alcoholic) at the time of their divorce and wants a share of her house. She has recently extended and improved the house and is obviously worried sick.
Anybody any ideas if he has a claim?
Thanks for that...will show her your reply. She is contacting the solicitor that dealt with the divorce for her but that will take time and I want to help calm her down...
as a matter of interest it was £700 a month so he would owe her a tidy sum. but she wants his absence not his money these days.
