assett acumulation after seperation.

Add Topic
I have been seperated from my ex for just under 3 years.I have a consents order in place but no divorce or property settlement.

I have the kids now my question is this.

I have just found out my ex sold his parents house as the parent is very ill and in a home.

My ex has told me it is none of my business but i was wondering if he has the money from the sale am i entitled to part of it since there has been no settlement reached at all.

Any advice would be appreciated .I do not have any money will legal aid help me at all.
contact a community legal centre.
It is free and you will be able to see a lawyer to get the right advice.
If you do a property settlement it is a 75(2) factor
which means you could benefit 
Yes get professional legal advice although inheritances that did not contribute the relationship are usually left out of asset pool.
It is often the case where the parent is admitted to a residental care facility that the house is sold to pay the accommodation bonds and other associated costs.  Hence it is wise not to assume the children are inheriting the property.
If the children take ownership of their parents assets then they have received their inheritance.
It sounds to me as if your x has power of attorney over his parents affairs and if so that means finances also, if that is so it is still his parents money and I do not believe you would be entitled to any of it.  SO best advice…seek legal advice
(Can't help myself, sorry!) Show some integrity, mate! Parent's house = parent's money. Even if they gave it to their son, as the ex, you should not even think about asking for any of it. That's just wrong! And don't try to convince anyone it is about the children. Pathetic!
Not if the ex spent years caring for them or supporting partner so they could support them.

  You talk about integrity well someone with integrity who received a lot of money would make sure the kids are looked after and not try to hide the money.That is just wrong as you say.

the ex has not contributed anything for years even when we were together.I spent years with the ex and the parent said we would be looked after.

If i was told the money is in a trust etc to pay for the parents costs not a problem.

I was told to mind my own business and for your information the money would make a very big difference to me and my kids so of course i want it if i can get it.
littleme - unless the parent has included you in their will then you don't have much of a claim.

What do the orders by consent cover?

Also how would you react if it was you that had to manage your parents assets to look after them?

Would it be any of his business?
