I feel like disappearing. On intial separation we thought we would eventually get back together. So my sons lives were not disrupted signed Separation Agreement giving her £400,000 paid house, car and 44% of income.
Now divorced she has new partner.
I feel like jacking it all in or moving abroad as thats only way I can stop maintenance.
Can separation agreements ever be overturned if rules had been broken (marital relations up until 1 month before divorce) and this was supposed to have been given up 2 years before.
OK. Then the agreement is very difficult to overturn. However, it is possible to apply to court to vary or discharge periodic payments if circumstances change. A loss of job, or retirement, would be common examples of situations where the reduction in the amount payable might be justified. Her having a new partner is a good reason to review payments as he presumably contributes to living expenses..
I am not too bothered about the mainteance payments as I fully expect to maintain sons. My main grief is we acted as if a reconcilliation was on the cards (brealing the no marital relations condition) and she ended up with the £400,000 house out of my stupidity thinking we would get back together. I told solicitor what to do and he put up little resistance. He also advises little chance of overturning agreement. New partner only stays a certain time as if it exceeded 20 days it would change separation agreement amd lower maintenance.
Thanks for help- might have degree in engineering but a dunce in common sense.
I was someone who would not give up in the marriage until now. 5 weeks ago she still was telling me me not to give up ( divorced a year). Unfortuneately iam totally powerless. She stays in a real small community. Thought of writing a letter to neighbours explaining how over generous and unfair she is. Would only land me in prison cell for slander although truthful. She wants peace in her life but i have difficulty moving on.
