My sister married in 1988. He had some land from parents

Customer Question

Hi. Acquaintance married in 1980's. He had some land from parents and they lived in house on land for some years during which time there was separation after father in law assaulted her. Gardai were involved and yes unfortunately she went back against all advice. A second child arrived to add to the financial misery. And then of course there were the extra marital relationships. She left with two children and again returned, this time after nearly a year. She returned to work part time as he cannot manage money but was able to spend what scarce resources they had, on his appearance etc. He promised to have her name on property but we all knew this was never going to happen. They bought a house in joint names. She is solely paying the mortgage and has now moved out following years of verbal abuse and bullying. He has survived serious ill health and is now threatening to get a barring order to prevent her and child u18 occupying the old house. Where can I turn to get advice as he bought house in his sole name which is rented during the Celtic tiger and continues to have other relationships. He says he won't give sign divorce papers when instigated as she is not getting any of HIS property. unfortunately there was a joint current account which has mounting debts and legal advice to her says she is responsible for half the debts since the marriage but not entitled to any of his property. Thank you for taking time to read this
