First Sept 1998 then May 1999 after Judge cancelled the Sept one due to lies given for grounds.
It was made after a fully fought county court hearing.
My solicitor at the time could only find 24k that had been deposited in a account which Judge made her pay this to me via my lawyer during the hearing. I do not have any written docs on this point
No I never had sight of them, as she sold the property before the divorce and as i was in her name I had no powers to examine them. the property was sold to one of my daughters for a lower than market value and there was an 'agreement' to pay an extra sum privatly over a number of years so that it kept the price down for the 'planned' divorce disclosure
the court accepted her lawyers docs and statement stating sale price and that there was no seriouis amounts of money left, I believe that due to the time factor between selling the property and instigating a divorce. She was never asked for proof of were it had gone by the judge and it was only by investigation by my solicitors that they found 24k in ireland
around 14 months from receiving divorce papers to actuall court as there were 2 failed mediation sessions during that period when the 'judge' tried to tell my ex wife to settle out of court but she would not conceed to any form of agreement
From being informed by fax she had sold the property to actually being in court would have been 14mnths approx
yes, the figures were made available to my solicitor who questioned that they were not the true value of the property but were accepted by the court
HiGood question !
I presume they did but I did not actually see it in person , the figure was contested but to no avail
But there is another situ ! My son in law told me he had paid 12.5k to my ex wife on an agreed 25k total on a seperate agreement a few years ago but did not pay balance as he was not happy the way it was going. but it was not done via any lawyers only on e mails and verbal as a long term investment , But he can show payments made on his statements. In fact she is trying to sell it twice
