We help 50,000 people a year through divorce
I am going through a divorce I have 2 children 1 of 5 and 1 of 10 I know that I have my responsibilities and I am not trying to shy away from them. My wife wants to pay me 30% and out of that I need to get a house. I am 47 and if I can get a mortgage and because of my age the mortgage will be over 17 years. to get somewhat decent place the monthly repayments will be about £1500 on top of that the wife wants 20% of my earnings for child maintenance which equated to about £700 per month. So, with mortgage and maintenance I will have to pay about £2200 on top of that I will have my council tax, utilities, food etc etc. how can i survive I have to life I feel that £700 is a bit steep considering that my salary is between 45-48k per year.
Can someone please advice
