hi i am a newbie on here last year i went to mediation we agreed to split the house 57 to me 43 for him as i have his child to look after i agreed not to ask for any of his pension and although i wanted to stop in my house till our child was out of full time education i agreed under my husbands pressure to sell it sept, which i have already done but now hes moving the goal post says he wants half i have stuck to the deal he hasnt so i am tempted not to stick to my agreement to sell the house and take it off the market, his reasons for the change of heart is my boyfriend has moved in,i changed the lock because my ex broke it, and i dared to replace the settee without his consent!!my ex is living with another woman in her flat but he doesnt want to see me having a life, his girlfriend smokes heavily and my daughter goes there fortnightly hes ingnored my pleas to ask her to smoke outside the flat as its hers and not his, have i any rights in all of this? i have just applied for a divorce but i am being held up with the fact that he wants more of the house. please help!!
What you agreed in mediation was clearly not signed up as a binding Consent Order if you haven't applied for the divorce yet, so nothing you agreed is legally binding. I suggest you should seek legal advice (you can often get a free half hour with a solicitor) to see if what you agreed to was fair, and if it was then when you begin the divorce you can begin to get your agreement finalised by the court... then you can begin to have the agreement enforced, which you can't do with your current arangement.
