My sister and brother in law were divorced Oct 2014. Just prior to that, my brother in law was slapped with an AVO and had to move out of the matrimonial home (jointly owned).The AVO was dismissed but he was advised no contact with ex wife.He is currently paying $500 a week rent, while she stays in the home with their 19 and 21 year old daughters. She wants to keep this home, but has so far had five different family law solicitors representing her. This has now ended up in the Federal Court and so far she has not secured another solicitor. This case has been going on for two years. If she wants to keep the home, is there a time frame for her to arrange finance to buy him out and have property settlement? It appears that she is doing everything she can to stall this-they are due back in court in three months if mediation between the two parties fails again.
