How can I seize a domain?

Hi there,

We have a strange situation with one of our clients.

Basically, one of the business partners wife registered a domain name for the company.

Not only has the business partner left the company, but their marriage has also split up! So we have no way of finding out the username or password the for domain. We need to point the MX records to the Exchange server for the company but obviously can't.

I heard you can go through Nominet or something to do this sort of thing, but does anyone know the exact process?

Many Thanks!

It requires legal action, I can only advise that you consult a solicitor, there are a number that specialise in this area.

There's no way at all of getting in touch with the current (listed) owner? Even if that is hard work it is likely to be easier than the alternative.

It could well be that I'm wrong about this, however I advise you contact someone like this company:

Especially as they have this statement "And you dont pay at all for an initial chat." which means if I can you can discover what is really needed without incurring charges.

Hi there I don't think we willa ctually go down this route as it would be easier to just get a new domain!! But thanks for your solution, I'm sure it would work if we had no other option :)

Many Thanks
