Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
Did the orders refer to this account?
Dp the orders say that it is to be split between the 2 of you with each receiving a half share?
If the account is mentioned in the orders you should send them a coy of the orders from the court and that is enough evidence to give them the right top split the money giving you 60%
Unless they have the orders or the consent from your ex they cannot release the money in any other percentage but 50/50 as that is how the account was held.
The orders should be enough to get it finalised. Have you sent them a certified copy of the orders?
The orders are enough to cover this.
You should deal with this in writing and keep copies.
have the orders copied and the copy certified. Send them to MLC and advise that the money is to be divided in the following shares in accordance with order X in the attached orders.
They should then release it. if the refuse then you can take them to the Ombudsman.
But you have to give them the orders.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
