Covid is having a big impact on my partner. The final hearing of her divorce was due in July, then August, then October, then this month, now it’s been postponed until next February.
This wouldn’t matter too much if her medical advice had not been to move to a more suitable and easily adapted house 4 years ago as her current homes poor internal design now makes it difficult to impossible for her to transfer from wheelchair to bed, bathroom and stairs in the same way she could 12 years ago when she moved in.
The major problem and reason the divorce case has to go to court is that her ex put an embargo on the sale of the house as he owns a share. My partner can’t get legal aid or assistance from the authorities because she has a trust fund, but that has been mismanaged and has depleted funds. One solicitor who is not on the case advised us that social services, solicitors and police should all work together to resolve the issue because my dearest is officially a at risk vulnerable adult. Then again pigs might fly!
The current Lockdown has presented yet another problem. When l am at work my partner often used to frequent the better supermarkets where she has safe access to their facilities and can spend quality time in the cafes to read or use her iPad to go online, but all those places are shut at the moment. This has meant that she has had to employ additional carers at over £800 per week. Nice one Boris, but HMG are unlikely to refund my partners trust.
The police wasted two years of our time and probably lost us key evidence. It would seem that to get a court order to obtain certain evidence you first need the evidence that court order would otherwise release. This is probably why so few fraud cases are ever resolved. Not in the public interest you see! Whereas the pain and suffering of my partner IS apparently in the public interest!
If l ever meet the head of that department in our supermarket again I may not be able to Kerb my tongue, but l suspect that he has already started to shop elsewhere to avoid us!
Then there is the parallel business we are involved with of ‘no win no fee’ civil action, but don’t hold your breath. That’s another story l’ll save for a rainy day.......oh! It’s raining again.
You couldn’t make all this up! But l have another cunning plan as there is always more ways to skin a cat! I’m beginning to think like att!
