Just wondering how long the financial side of divorce negotiations is deemed reasonable? My ex refused mediation, then we negotiated for a few months and got nowhe because he wouldn't give all his financial information. Then, I put things on hold because he took me to court over residency of our daughter. I was granted residency, but it took 6 months.
I have been negotiating again since January 2017. We are now separated for 3 years. He has started giving some information but he hasn't stated what he wants from the settlement.
I have applied for legal aid to take things to court, but he has objected saying we are still in negotiations!
He is messing you around no end. So bloody stressful for you.
My EH did this. Been gone 3 years and still stalling. Recently discovered that he inherited a large amount of money a few months after leaving me with debts - he had basically made sure he has spent most of it so me and the children don't get a penny - I would never even have wanted it. Absolute bastard.
Make sure he isn't running up debts etc that could be twisted into your finance.
I took mine to Court in the end - that process still takes a long time....
I'm pushing things as much as I can! My solicitor says she is going to counter his objection. I hope the legal aid board will grant me the legal aid or don't know how I can obtain anything.
We have a joint mortgage on the house he lives in (our old house) and I check each month that he pays (he has). Don't have any other joint debts.....I dont think he has got any debts in my name that is don't know about. My credit rating seems still okay and heard nothing.
