Millionaire asked ex-wife to stay on as maid

A UK ex-wife of a millionaire was asked to stay on as a maid in the home she shares with her ex-husband for over twenty years after their divorce, reports TheTelegraph. Since the ex-husband is moving in his new partner, he had thought the arrangement would be ideal for all. Understandably, the ex-wife was upset as she found the request insulting. The unnamed couple, who was married in the 70’s, but divorce later continued to live together as “usual” in the marital home for over twenty years. A high court judge in the UK has determined that she was entitled to half of her husband’s total net worth.

This is a perculiar case since the couple continued to live together for so long after a divorce was already granted. The main issue that most attorneys reading this would struggle with, in cases arising over 20 years prior to origination is the statute of limitations, or the prescription period is the length of time that had passed. In Thailand, similar to mother other nations, the prescription period for various cases could be found in the Thailand Civil and Commercial Code. According to Thai Attorneys, a case like this, concerning statutes of limitations, would generally be difficult to litigate, after such a long period of time.
