What are my rights and what should I do? I have been living with my boyfriend for 16 years. He has proposed to me but wants me to sign a pre nuptial agreement. Is this advantageous?

November interview with Stowe Family Law
Phil Richards interviews Claire McParland of Stowe Family Law on divorce related issues. Here are the questions: I want to divorce my husband of 6 years. He says that he wants half of everything including half of my personal possessions! This includes gifts he has given to me over the years. Is this possible? I began divorce proceedings recently but have lost contact with my wife and so has her solicitor. She has sent me a hand written letter saying she has left the country, wants nothing to do with me and doesn’t want to be found. Only her friends know where she is living. What should I do to make sure the divorce goes through? I am in the middle of divorcing my husband who know lives in the US. I suspect from social media posts that he has remarried in the US before our divorce has been finalised. Will this affect divorce proceedings here in the UK? I am recently married and am concerned about my husbands identity. When we got to the airport to go on honeymoon I noticed a completely different name in his passport to who he told me he was. What is going on here and does this affect the legality of our marriage? I am divorcing my husband of 10 years. I have been told by his best friend that he recently went to his bank and withdrew all his savings in cash, and he won’t be declaring the money as part of the divorce settlement and it’s a substantial amount. What happens in this situation?

Latest interview with Stowe Family Law
Phil Richards of Verulam in the Morning chats with Claire McParland of Stowe Family Law about divorce related matters. Here are the questions: My husband has died from a short illness half way through our divorce. What happens here and am I entitled to anything? I am divorcing my wife and run a self built business with 3 friends who are all directors of the company. My friends are concerned that my wife may have a claim on the business as part of the divorce settlement and they are worried it will ruin the company. What can be done here? I want to divorce my husband of 5 years as I frankly don’t like him anymore. He says he will never grant me a divorce. I recently read a newspaper article that said new legislation has been passed where you don’t have to give a reason for divorce so can push it through even if the other party doesn’t agree. Is this true? My husband and I are divorcing and have left it to our 3 children to decide who they wish to live with in the future. Will a court be able to consider the wishes of our children? I am a record producer and am divorcing my wife. I am likely to receive royalty payments for the rest of my life. Will my wife be able to claim a portion of my future income or can I petition for a final settlement?

Monthly family law interview with Stowe Family Law
Phil Richards interviews Claire McParland of Stowe Family Law about divorce related issues. Here are the questions: I have been married to my husband for 22 years but we are going through a ‘rough patch’. Can a divorce lawyer recommend or even provide mediation to sort our problems out and avoid a divorce? I am planning to divorce my wife. I was recently introduced to a divorce lawyer when in my local pub. Am I able to check if this person is really a lawyer? Does a national register exist? I split up with my wife 3 years ago and ever since have been paying a mutually agreed amount to support her and our two children. Last week my wife declared she wants to double the maintenance but I can’t afford to do this. What can I do legally? I married a man after knowing him for only 4 months. I’ve just discovered that he is still married to a previous wife and has never divorced. I no longer want to be with him so can I have the marriage annulled? I am in the middle of divorcing my husband. His mother has recently died and left him a fortune whilst stipulating in her Will that I mustn’t receive a penny. Does this windfall have to be included in some sort of financial disclosure that would be involved in the divorce?

What’s the quickest amount of time I can get divorced? I have been married for 11 years and now want a divorce. The problem is I cannot find my marriage certificate and the priest that married us says the book where are our marriage was recorded was destroyed in a fire. What should I do? I divorced my wife 3 years ago and our children live with her. She wants to change our children’s school which I am opposed to. She won’t reason with me so can I take the matter to court? My son is getting divorced and says his wife will try and stop us as grand parents from seeing our grand children. I’ve heard of ‘grand parents rights’ but would these allow a court to grant us access to our grand children?
