Are the assets only personal assets? Do you and her own the house?

personal assets,she owns the house

Good Afternoon

You have a right t make a claim on part of the house as you were married and I will assume you also made payments and also did work on it.

You advise request access to the proeprty to remove your items and if it is not granted you will see a solicitor and start proceedings seeking a property settlement.

The law will apply the following 4 steps.

Step 1: Determine what the assets are and their value

This will include all assets and their value as at the day that you are dividing them. It does not matter whose name the assets are in, they will form part of the matrimonial pool. Superannuation entitlements are also included.

Step 2: Determine what contributions you and your Husband made towards the assets.

This includes a consideration of both financial and non-financial contributions. Consideration is given to what assets each of you brought into the marriage as well. The weight given to your initial contribution will be dependent upon the length of your relationship. The longer the relationship the less weight given to the initial contribution.

Step 3: What are each of your future needs.

Consideration is given to your respective ages, your comparitive income earning capacity as well as other factors.

IF these things don't balance equally for each spouse, then an adjustment is made in the percentages.

Step 4: Make an order that is just and equitable between both spouses

This all takes time

If she has not changed the locks and you can get access you can also go in and take you personal items but be careful she does not claim you assaulted her.

You should take an independent person with you.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

Is there any more information you need to enable you to give me advise
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
At no stage has she disputed the items I'm asking for, she just will not let me come and get them , other than breaking in what legal way can I get my stuff
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
I am disappointed with your lack of response, I have ripped off.

If you break in you will be charged

If you have a key you can gain access legally.

If not then you need a court order and you have to take the matter to the Family Court.

If you do that also make an application for a share of the house.
