Divorce Me 3

She wants One Hundred and Ninety Thousand pounds from me.

Three hundred and Sixteen Thousand US dollars.
Two hundred and Seventy Thousand Euros.
Equal to Eight hundred and Fifty One ounces of gold.

Plus the money for the furniture.

I couldn't find the exchange rate for pieces of silver.
To put that into perspective, she wants me to get a mortgage that is seven times my salary (despite the outstanding court judgements against me). And then to spend the next fifty years of my life paying for the mistake of having trusted her.

This is 'fair.' It will allow her to give up work, and to extend the appetite for travel which the 8 weeks in Australia I paid for whetted.

I've never even conceived that a person could segue into money grabbing usurer so quickly.

Do all this, and pay for the food, Vanessa.

If this is the deal, boy do I stand to take me some well-deserved slaps out of it.

Whaaaa?? Not serious, surely? Offer her 70pee and take it from there..

Oh, and half a mars bar for the furniture, 'course.

Yes. She 'could get more' if she made me homeless in the process. As opposed to merely destitute?

If I were her, I'd realise now that it's dangerous for my personal safety to be in the same house as Vanessa. If she thinks she's going to get this @#%$! dosh without ABH on the side, she's wrong.

Bollocks can she!*

*Assuming the mortgage is in both names.

Seriously, get a val and get your arse down the CAB asap!

No need. I shall be the one with the baseball bat. I don't give a @#%$! what comes of it.

Oh yes. She has a piece of paper, you see. This makes it alright to behave this way. I hope her @#%$! friends are reading this.

Okay, just hit her very, very gently first-off (badminton racquet preferable). She may surrender easily.

She's a spoiled little bitch if she thinks she can get away with this. Consult a solicitor ASAP.

What Alex Buell said. See a lawyer right away. I know you're trying to be *civilised* about all of this, and it doesn't have to be see as an act of agression. One should never mess around with property law, and it's best you both know where you stand, legally speaking.

Isn't it sad how people change when money is involved. Brings out the utter worst in them, especially on top of a break-up.

First off, collect all of your credit card statements, bank receipts, etc.

That way, you can prove that you've put more money into the house than she had, and prove that you paid for her trip.

All you need to do, is prove a larger interest in the house. (i.e, you've been living in it, paying the bills, buying the food, insurance? ) Just collect everything.

Then go see the CAB - or a Solicitor would be even better if you could afford one. (have a look in the pink paper - there are organisations that deal specifically with this sort of thing.)

Or you could always declare yourself bankrupt. Which would mean that, as the other party to the mortgage, she would be liable for everything. Including ANYTHING secured on the house. (but it would also mean you would lose your home and your bank account for three years)

Good luck.

I have to agree that it seems to be time to bring a solicitor into the situation. Get your rights asserted and explore all the options you potentially have. Get valuations or make them up for every little thing involved and attempt to put the onus onto her as the exiting partner. Good luck, I'm thinking of you.

I think your decision to split up's just been justified. Just shake your head in a way that says "Borderline mental case!"

I gather you've got a mortgage in joint names?
