Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I like to know in this situacion how much she can take of the house and do i have to give her anything.Im happy to give her 10 or 20% but she wants more.Our marrige wasnt happened in Australia.We went to Las Vegas 6 years ago and as its a coomon thing people get quickly married there we did it to.So in a state of Nevada our marrige is registered but untill now i didnt even know its real marrige in here to,only find out recently.
So please answer me how many chances she is got to take half of the house once i sell it and just cos i put her name on the house when bought it still i can prove it i was the person who pays the morgage and still paying it of.
She doesnt wanna fill out application and doesnt wanna divorce me untill the house get sold also she doesnt wanna move out from the house and still living there with her 2 kids which r from an other man before i met her
Is that means anything and can work on my side that the marrige was made in Las Vegas and we didnt register our marrige in Australia...
No family or wedding ring was include it we just did it for fun and cos she wanted to change her name as she has bad history and wanted a fresh start.
I was only 21 years old and she was 37.We got a certificate in Las Vegas but no documents or registration in Australia...
Is the court look at this marrige in a same way as if i got married here or cos its a different country its different laws to????
Also if she doesnt put any money into the house and i was the one was supporting her and her kids am i in every right to decide what will i give her or if she can make it difficult for me?
She was the one was organising my paper works and bills but the money was coming out from my bank account which for a certain time was a joint account(not anymore).She had no income or sometime here or there a part time job either her kids.I am the one was working hard and had/have good income to support all of us and pay all the bills
Her kids r 18 and 21 years old and they dont work at all she has a part time job now.I did right by supported all of them for years but its came to the point when i couldnt take it and be used anymore.I dont feel fair to give her 30% cos she put nothing in the house either they kids so why should i give more when i gave enough.??
Im still beeing nice to themby letting them stay in my house its time for them to do something for themself and stop living of me.
Can u please tell me what i can do about they still living there and dont even wanna move?I mean im still beeing good to them to sort they life but end of the they i deserve what i worked for so i can start a new life.
If i moved out already but my letters r still on that address from when is the 12 month start or how can i make it happen to do it faster cos in my opinion we separated already
The house is in both of us name....
What can i do about it if she hide or throw out all my clothes my watches and every time i go to the house she make sore its nothing of my staff there...and also her kids rang a police on me cos i went in to my own house.
Its getting a very bad situation and nasty she still try to control my life so was thinking to change my address so my letters wont go there but just wanna make sure if i do am i still in every right to go in&out and do anything in my own house even if i dont live there and letters wont go there but the house is onmy name to....
Thank u Alex u been very helpful.
What about if i cange my address will it affect me at all?
So r u saying if i fill out the form and the police r deliver to her is she&her kids has to move out straight away or what happens?
I had heaps of messages from her she is abusing me and talking me down call me a dog and using ugly swearing words plus wish me to die in a car accident but i just deleted them an other day cos couldnt read them anymore.R u reckon i can get it back to prove it im on the plan with vodafone..
