    So are you not divorcing now?  I thought paperwork had started? 

    Has your wife stopped making claims about the house?


    Forty and fabulous, well that's what my cards say....

    Yes we getting a annulment. She's not going to make any claims now but surprisingly asking for a clean break order.  I was wondering do you even need one if getting annuled as it's not a divorce.

    Yes, you need a clean break agreement. Annulment does not severe the financial connection between yourselves. 
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    Thanks. I had a house in my sole name before marriage. We was married for 3 months before split and she left. We had no finances together, could she claim anything if she wanted like my house? We always had separate finances. But she never owned any property. 
    I don't think she's after anything now but wanted to check.

    The norm for a short marriage, less than two years when no children were born, is that each returns to the state they were in before marriage.

    You are more at risk if you don't have a clean break now, in case the norm changes.
