Recently Chris Bowen, one of our Family Law solicitors who is based at our head office in Macclesfield, but also travels across the local area to help clients with legal family matters, appeared on High Peak Radio to answer your questions about a variety of family law issues. He took part in High Peak Radio’s regular Legal Eagle slot and you can catch his interview and get answers to some of the most common family law issues that people face below.
“Can I divorce my husband in the UK if we were married abroad, and how would I go about it?”
“I own my own home and my girlfriend is moving in with me. Does the house become joint after we have lived together for a certain length of time?”
“My partner and I bought a house together some time ago and we have now separated. We have agreed that my daughter and I will continue to live in the house, but the building society is not prepared to let me take on the mortgage by myself. What do I do?”
“My husband and I are now in divorce proceedings. We sold our house and divided the monies equally, but we still need to sort out savings and pensions. My husband has been receiving his pension for many years, so how do we value that?”
“My husband and I ended on bad terms and he is now looking to divorce me. We do not meet the criteria for a no-fault divorce and he has made allegations against me that I do not agree with. Is there anything that I can do to challenge?”
