Our divorce was granted on 20th May 2014. We separated on 18 February 2013; initially ex husband and I have sit down and sorted our property settlement verbally. He told me not to consult solicitors to avoid extra expenses. I agreed and started to research how to complete the consent orders forms and minutes of order. I have approached legal aid to check if I have completed the form correctly and if there are missing items that need to be recorded. She advised me that I need to insert all my financial contributions before marriage and this I explained to my ex husband which at the time had agreed. However, due to death of my sister January this year, I have to travel overseas. when I came back and we have another sit down discussion, he agreed to all the figures we enter in the consent forms. And he signed a discharge mortgage form for both loan so we can arrange refinance. I will take over the home loan (principal residence) and he will take over investment loan( duplex property). When I had all documents available to be signed he did not show up and decided that he will get a solicitor to prepare the consent order form which I told him that's fine as long I am not paying the cost for the solicitor. This was March 2014 and now November we still negotiating as his solicitor keeps sending me the form without acknowledging my financial contribution. During the separation period, I kept the home loan and made payment as I normally do, making payment more than scheduled amount, which I used the redraw facility to pay my credit cards (mostly bills). Now, with his GF coached him that he is entitled to half of that, where he is never made payment and he is aware of my activities on this loan and agreed for me to use and keep it the way I want to be. As I don't have solicitor myself, I personally respond to his solicitor as I don't know much of those legal terminology which can be daunting. I have approached legal aid but would not help me as the total property equity is more than $146,000.00 Do you know anyone who can help me to assist in preparing myself to court. And his solicitor made a statement of that costs on an indemnity basis will be sought from the court be awarded to our client - payable by YOU (me). They are not the one who wants to go to court and would not agree on our original terms why should I pay for the cost? Anyone can help me will much appreciated.
