What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

Hi There

Would really appreciate some advice I received some paperwork from my ex husbands solicitor this morning saying that some paperwork for old properties in France hadn't been signed over to him and that he is facing a financial crisis ( which is a load of rubbish). we went to court Febuary 2015 and it was all dealt with then. we had a Clean Break order from the judge and this was dealt with in Febuary. after reading this letter from his solicitor it says that I have 7 days to respond or they will apply for a penial notice through the court. now my solicitor assured me that all had been sorted and I hadn't heard anything for over year. do I ignore this and hope that he disappears( which I know he want because he will do anything to be cause upset and still be in the background.

Thanks in advance :blink:

If these are properties that were awarded to him in the settlement, then why don't you just sign?

I appreciate it is irritating to be approached after so long and that the take of woe/heavy handed approach from the solicitor is inappropriate. However, this won't go away if you ignore it so why not ask precisely what needs signing and just do it?

Hi Hadenoughnow

I believe that I had signed everything at the time of the court hearing and hadn't heard a thing since Febuary last year so I wasn't aware of anything not being signed, I wondered whether I had grounds to complain to my solicitor about this ?? is it a lacking on their part or just an oversight ?

Thanks again Jules 68

I think you need to be clear about exactly what the paperwork is and why it has not been produced until now. Then you can work out how this situation has arisen and decide whether to complain to your own solicitor.

I would guess this is probably some sort of transfer document. Perhaps, as the properties were to be sold, it wasn't practical to transfer them to his sole name before sale. This would mean you still have to agree to it.
