          Hi Pioneer11,
          Just to clarify when you divorced in 2008 did you and your ex have a financial order made separating your assets on divorce. If so what if any potential claim(s) were left open such as spousal maintenance.

          If no financial settlement was made what arrangements did you come to with regard to division of the assets? Is it documented somewhere? Has your ex indicated they may make a claim to settle the finances of the divorce? Are you just worried as you have read something or has there been an indication your ex would do this?

          Even if a claim were made to settle the finances the fact you have been apart since 2008 will come into play. Everything would be in the pot so to speak, it is then necessary to look at the s25 factors as to how the assets should be divided. The factors include things such as length of marriage, children, earning capacity of each party etc. Here are the factors the Court would look at:- http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1973/18/section/25

          The fact that you have been independent of each other since 2008 will factor also. You may be panicking unnecessarily particularly if there has been no indication from your ex that a claim would be made. It is of course sensible to have matters finalised once and for all but please try not to worry. Everything would be taken into consideration if a claim happened including the fact that no claim has been made in the preceding 10 years since you divorced.
          I am a qualified solicitor employed by the LegalBeagles forum to provide guidance on a wide range of legal queries. I am happy to try and assist informally, where needed.

          Any posts I make on LegalBeagles are for information and discussion purposes only and shouldn't be seen as legal advice. Any practical advice I give is without liability. I do not represent people on the forum.

          If in doubt you should always seek professional face to face legal advice.
