What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hi All,

Me and my wife got married in 2011, unfortunately she just married for VISA. Now I am staying in India even though I got british passport and she is staying in UK on my dependent VISA, she has clearing told me if I do tell her anything she will put case against me in police station (Which I have recorded her wordings).

Now problem is she is staying in my house in the UK and not willing to come back to India, I have not applied for Divorce yet as if I do before she is in India she will never come back.

I need suggestion is there any way to cancel her VISA from immediate affect and force her to move out from my house whose mortgage is paid by me.

Thanks

I don''t know the official procedure in this situation but if it was me I''d contact the British Embassy in India and their visa section and explain all the details to them. You''ve got nothing to lose if they can''t guide you in the right direction.

Thanks,

I had word with them, but they mentioned contact ukba as they will take care of it, Contact UKBA but no support from them.

Just want way that she comes back to India or leave my house. I was thinking of going to UK and book a complain that she is forcefully staying there and also just inform police that she has threating me that if I do anything wrong she will make official police complain about harassment and mental toucher against me.

I''m sorry but not surprised to hear you had no luck with the Embassy or UKBA, I''ve dealt with them a lot myself as my ex was from another country too and they are not co-operative as you''ve seen for yourself. The only thing I can suggest is ask your MP back in the UK to write to them as they can''t ignore him/her or mess them around like they do to ordinary citizens.

I think married people have rights about housing (I don''t know the legal status of all this so hopefully someone else on this site can help with that) even if they don''t own it so I don''t know how easy or difficult it will be for you to get rid of her from there.

You don''t say which visa applies (settlement visa?) If it is that one I guess she has the right to stay in the UK until you''re divorced, or even after that if she has been there long enough.

From what you''ve said I don''t think you''ve got anything to lose by starting the divorce proceedings, presumably you''ll have to agree on an assets share like most people do but at least you''ll be rid of her.

Thanks for your reply.

She has got VISA left till 2017. She needs my support even she applies for ILR.

But as she is in my house I cannot remove her from Council tax also. So planning to remove my name from the council tax.

And thinking to travel to UK, and make a complain against her as she is staying in my hosuse, do you think that will help.

hi again

I understand what you mean that she still needs your support as it''s no recourse to public funds, I think you''re right to come back here if you can as it will make it a lot easier to try and resolve things than from so far away.
I''m not sure who you can complain to about her living in your house while you''re still married, as she will have rights about that, but if you start the divorce proceedings she will have to start to look at what she''s gonna do for housing and financial support after divorce and if she can even stay in the country much longer.
Presumably she''ll be entitled to her share of the assets but at least you''ll know where you stand and what will happen to your house. That''s a step forwards from where you are at now if nothing else

Only problem is If I come back she will never go till 2017, and take help from good lawyer and stay in this country for ever.

I might loose my house completely as she will not come out. If I come now I won;t stay with her will move to rental place and then she will continue women''s power and make me suffer more.

I am in all kind of trouble.
