Wondered if any of you could give me some advice with the hope someone out there has been in my shoes...
Long story short...purchased my house in Nov 2013 had a large deposit due to sale of previous property. Met my ex husband Dec 2013. I moved into my new home in Feb 2014 he stayed back and forth between my house and his mums (where he was living when I met him) moved in gradually by around Dec 2014. Married Aug 2015..marriage lasted ten months, he left my home in June 2016. He paid nothing during the first year. Second year he’d give me between £50-£80 per week if I was lucky. He started threatening me for money when he left using all kinds of ways to blackmail me. I went through all my bank statements for the two years I was with him, breaking down the bills, living costs, mortgage etc and outlined, that actually he owes me £17k in expenses wedding costs, and lastly, three months before he left I loaned him £8k to pay off his huge debts (interestingly which he accumulated trying to sue another company for money, but failed). After writing this email from him, he went quiet apart from a few threats and blackmail attempts. It’s now been two and a half years and out of nowhere, he’s hired a solicitor who wants three years of my bank statements, my business accounts and three valuations on my house!! I paid for everything in my house. Every mortgage payment paid by me. Every tradesman, pot of paint, furniture etc paid by me. I can prove everything I’m saying in the way of bank statements etc. So my question is, is he entitled to anything of mine given the length of the marriage? Oh by the way this guy is a qualified engineer and is very capable of earning his own money.
