So would it be safe for me to claim half of my monthly costs from him for the period he was unemployed? As for the tribunal, does it make a difference that my ex husbands name does not physically appear on the tenancy agreement?
Sorry, but could you explain the "threes" comment in more detail to me?
as in married or in a relationship and married?
So, I did not directly pay towards the mortgage, I paid the rent on the house we were renting, in full, no contribution from him
Yes it did
Thank you so much! I just also need to know how to lodge this, i.e. what form to use and where/how it's done? Can you help me with this?
Thanks to him and his brother, money is non existant! But that would be great if you could do that, I'm in Takapuna in Auckland
Is this an application you would be able to do?
