i have read through your answer and thank you for your reply, is lodging that form the only way of protecting my 35% interest in the equity. I am happy with the arrangements for my daughter and i don't want any claim against goods and furnishings in the property there are no other financial assets involved, i paid out all outstanding debts when i left. HP, rental lease agreements and visa and MasterCard total around $15000. I retired from the work force on the 28th Dec 2012 and received around $60000 in super as a payout , my ex has her own super and continues to make contributions thru her employer, this whole sorry saga has cost me a small fortune I already surrendered 2 superannuation policies ($46000) and used that money to pay down house hold debt, also purchased a motor vehicle which was basically for the exclusive use of my ex, she however wrote that vehicle off when she with my daughter in the vehicle deliberately rammed into my vehicle (which resulted in several charges and dvo being made by police), apart from tools of trade the only asset i have taken with me from the home is My vehicle a 2000 landrover discovery value $10000.The insurance on the written off Hyundai was paid to me i was the registered owner and the insured $10000 If there is any simple way to do this all i want is my 35% interest in the equity protected. To complete the form in the kit will open up a pandoras box and delay divorce proceedings which have already been adjourned from April until Nov
Sorry i should also add that i reside semi permanent in china, I am returning to Aus in October specifically to finish the divorce
I hope to obtain decree nisi on the 19th
