Hi, I am married, and my husband has an ex-partner who is constantly stalking our financials (through friends) and she also has placed caveats on my husband's properties under the guise of child maintenance. I don't want to let the above situation stop me from investing in properties or buying a dream home for myself and my family. Question is, how do I purchase a property that can pretty much guarantee my partner's ex won't have any caveatable interest in it? What are my options? I've been told by our family lawyers that my husband's ex can place a caveat on any property. Even if the property is just under my name. I would like to invest in a property that one day can be passed on to my (and my husband's) son. I do not want to see this property be jeopardised and be brought into the ongoing dispute of child maintenance between my husband and his ex. His child maintenance case has been in court on and off for 3 years now, and judging from the past, she will continuously apply for a variation of amounts for maintenance as long as she has an excuse. She has applied for variation as much as 12 times, and the child is only 5 years old. Overtime my husband changed jobs, drives a different car, etc. So I'm really worried about purchasing a property. But surely property law can protect me? I'm not involved in this other than being married. Thanks in advance for any help.
