How can I distance myself from my ex’s financial mess?

 

Hi James,

 

I have recently divorced and wish to separate my financial commitments from my ex-husband’s. I am about to send in my divorce certificate. The financial stuff is with the solicitor but I don't want my ex's credit to affect mine so can I be separated from his financial mess please? Thanks.

            

 

Wendy, Barry

 

Dear Wendy,

We can certainly help with this, so long as there’s no continuing financial connection between your ex-husband’s finances and your own. Child maintenance payments do not count and we may be able to overlook a joint mortgage if you’ve been living apart for six months or more. We will need you to complete our financial connections questionnaire so we can look into separating your reports for you. You can also read our Relationship Breakdown guide for further advice on getting everything sorted out. Good luck.
