UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
No she hasn't but has been living with a partner for 12 years ( pre our actual divorce ) . The assets were split as the time on a 65/35 % basis in her favour so she had the house ( mortgage free ) and its contents plus a new car I bought her and £5 k cash . The split was on the basis her pension and my pension would not be touched - she is 10 years younger than me and there was no children in the marriage. I just thought that as she had crossed out the ' ancillary relief ' part at the time that she was clearly happy with our verbal agreement as she had stated that .
She is now making a claim for pension plus property adjustment order , lump sum etc but my question is has she waived the right to that as she crossed out the ancillary relief part on the original petition ?
