Areas of Law / Divorce and Family

My husband had nothing when I married him, but while we were together he received a redundancy payment and windfall shares. He will also be able to draw from his pension plan next year. Now we are getting divorced he has stripped the home of everything we bought and I’’ve been told I’’ve no claim on anything because we weren’’t married very long.

You don’’t say how long you’’ve been married, but these days a marriage of six or seven years is not necessarily considered to be a short marriage! The court would consider among other things your respective ages, health, earning capacities and resources generally. See a solicitor immediately to prevent your husband disposing of the shares and savings and any of the contents taken from the home, and with a view to determining your claim generally.
