Bought my daughter a Barbie Doll for Christmas. Never realised there was so much choice. In the end I bought her Divorced Barbie.

It came with Ken's house, Ken's car......

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

What about the pension - did she go after the pension ?

I don't know the legalities but someone close to me is in the same boat although in his case it is his second wife who has the money.

They both have wills which make it clear that their money goes to their own kids.

That just leaves the house which was paid for with her money. In theory he is entitled to half as he pays the bills however the deal they have is if she dies first the property goes to her kids but he can live their until he dies and then they can do what they like with it.

I think that is a fair settlement she ensures the money she had before they met goes to her family whilst he has a roof over his head.

Tell him it needs to be in writing. Otherwise the kids will just sell the house and chuck him out, guaranteed.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

In court, I signed over the house, but kept my pension. The last thing I wanted was to be old and have f@ck all. I will have enough to live and die in the sun. Hopefully somewhere nicer than Bognor.

Pre-nuptial is the best way. Don't need a lawyer, just get some rough thoughts down and signed by both parties and 2 witnesses. Then keep the agreement in an accountants safe/deposit box, or put it online,...and forget about it.

Once that is done, the stress is lifted, and they can get back to serious loving.

If they did divorce it wouldn't be amicable. Because lawyers get involved to provoke both parties so the legal team can get the best outcome for themselves.
The couple wouldn't have the monies to be able to live in separate households (after paying lawyers fees).

Pre-nup is the way to go. Just don't make it too complicated.

They at least need a lifetime settlement to avoid one becoming homeless when the other dies

When I divorced 20 years ago it was a case of splitting the assets 50/50 - that was legally binding, no argument, irrespective of what each couple bought to the marriage, or what each earned. I am sure it's the same. House value, savings, investments and valuables are added up and divided by two.

In my experience, the length of the marriage is taken into consideration; if you divorce after a short marriage, some importance is attached to what each party brought into the marriage and future earnings potential rather than a straight 50:50 split. Of course the definition of what constitutes a short marriage is open to interpretation; I was able to use the short marriage argument with some success when divorcing after 9 years ... and most importantly I was able to protect my pension.

My mate is looking to get married in his late forties and wants to know where he would stand legally if they divorce.

They are both going into it with assets but one is worth a lot more than the other. They are too old for kids so does anyone know what would happen if they say divorced after five years, would their assets just get slit fifty/fifty?

Probably a hard question to answer.

They donít want a prenuptial.

Cheers

They should leave it to a reputable charity and by luck-i have just started one, basically, old age/animal/environment/overseas aid/homeless/refugees/all nasty diseases/veterans/water for third world/saving stately homes etc etc-all the basics and many more-you might want to pass on my info to help solve this dilemma?
