I have got married in India in 2008 and I came here in
Hi I have got married in India in 2008 and I came here in Newzealand in 2013 along with my partner and she came here as a student and I came here as a dependent visa .Due to dependent category- in 2017 I have got my Residency .But things were changed a lot and she decided to separate from me .she called her parents from India and they said to me that I can leave home. I left home. After that I applied my Permanent residency as a single person.My father has died -(cancer) and I got stuck in India due to that and lost my job .Then I applied for MSD Job as my partner was working with that but I got opportunity in Wellington due to tenure was very short and was secondment she convinced me to come back to Auckland and drop her for few days and due to covid 19 situation I tried to help her but when I came back home she totally changed her attitude and said she will never ever give me divorce and needs money for divorce.I was really shocked to know that she was thinking like that way beacause when we seperated there was no balance was due still I was keep on paying her 2 years internet bill. Now she is needs money and said she will not give divorce untill I will not pay her 20000$. Other wise she will file false complain in India and NZ as her uncle is a crimanal lawyer in India.Her mother keep on calling my mom (she is half paralysed and taking few other medicine like bp ans sugar). I dont want to lose my mom due to our fight. we have seperated more then 2 years and I dont want to continoue this relationship.

Do you have an NZ Lawyer on line. This is the problem, in
Partners son died suddenly last year, no will ... Lawyers handling are at final disbursement stage as he had life ins. NZ intestate law splits assets 50/50 my partner and ex wife. Ex wife would not allow partner to be involved in ANY funeral arrangements etc and didnt even mention his name in the service. NOW she has shown up demanding how he spend his 50% of the remaining estate. ( he had life ins policy ) all dispursements have been paid and now its just the finishing off.. She wont sign to allow funds to be paid unless he bends to her wishes................ NOT the big issue.. At the sons funeral we were told that his old employer would be making a big payment to his estate..... this had slipped our minds and didnt think anything of it, NOW with the ex wife hold my partner to ransom with the funds in the estate $36k so not much, it has come to light that the Ex partner HAS RECIEVED a very substantial payment from the sons employers and has purchased a house with them. Yes she has just purchased a house and yes it was a surprise as she is was not in a financial position to do so and would also doubt would be able to borrow sufficient funds from a bank........ This payment has NOT gone through the estate and i dont think the lawyers dealing with the estate know about it.... well i would hope not...... QUESTION... should this money have been paid to the estate by the employer and QUESTION 2 can it now be recovered and correctly apportioned. We have name of employer who made the payment, should we contact the lawyer handling the estate or use another lawyer to look into.. We would like to recover this money as he has a partner who was not provided for and who we are trying to help... apart from that it is in my mind totally dishonest......... Thoughts please … read more

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
