We divorced without any finances being agreed. At the time we were getting on ok and was working through everything and going to do a consent agreement. His arent s then died and suddenly I got a form E from a solicitor that he had instructed.
Without a consent order it certainly is possible, how likely will depend on what assets from the marriage existed, did they cover both your housing needs?.
Many factors are taken into account age income future income potential kids number and age of pensions and when they will be payed health, lots of things, none are considered alone, its the big picture that matters.
We had assets that covered both housing needs. However, we had initially worked it out on equity of properties and pension values and tried to roughly split it. It worked out that he was about £20k better off than me but I just wanted it sorted but then his parents died and he has now gotthis soicitor who is pushing hard for him to have more than that.
