Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How much is the property worth and how much is outstanding on the first mortgage?
What other assets are there?
What was the nature of the business - and what were these funds used for?
What does he claim the money was used for - and how much is the business worth - you do still have a claim on it!
Do any of the other businesses have a value?
Actually you have a claim in family law on the assets owned by your husband - including these businesses
What income and pension provision does your ex have?
As a starting point once the paperwork arrives you may of course be reporting the matter to the Police as a case of Forgery or Financial Fraud.
If that is the case then the Charge will not stand.
Even if the signature is yours the close relationship between your ex and his business partner means that the partner had a greater responsibility to ensure that you were fully aware of the nature of the document that you were signing and given your illness it is unlikely that he will be able to justify accepting the Charge without having spoken to you directly regarding the matter
Finally even if it does stand however all is not lost as your ex will have to account for the monies - and may well have to renegotiate a settlement leaving you in the house until matters can be resolved.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
You are most welcome and I hope all goes as well as it can
