My parents lent me a large amount of money to pay the university fees. Now, if I use my personal income to pay back my parents, will that be looked as using relationship property to pay personal debts? My partner and I have been together for over a year. Thanks.

Check with your local CAB. Just off hand dont you have to have been in a partnership for 2 years before property etc becomes joint?
Yes, 3 years actually, but it also says "income during the relationship is relationship property", which confuses me.
I think youll find your local CAB will run a free legal service where you can speak to a lawyer for free....may pay to check

There is a Community Law Office in Madras Street, if I remember rightly, and they offer free advice. I went to them once with a problem that I didn't want to discuss with our family lawyer, and they were a great help.
