Prior to the Supplement Divorce Petition My wife’s initial claim’s were for a 70/30 split in her favour on the proceeds of the deferred sale of the FMH. Her reasoning as one of the boys is autistic he will be dependent on her well into child hood. He is a bright little boy with no real behavioural problems though she states otherwise. Though he could be considered a little odd. Her argument being bolstered by the fact he gets DLA and she a carer’s allowance. I have written and suggested to her sol that maybe a medical assessment should be carried out to try and assess his long term needs. Something my wife I imagine is likely to want to avoid, as the current DLA would likely get reduced.
Clearly this is not a SM case so a clean break will likely be achieved.
A court connot do that for children -any such agreement is unenforceable although I have encountered a case where a complicated order was approved by the Court..but those facts would not apply here.
You don't say what the mtge is and crucially what would be the cost of REASONABLE accomodation for W + C.....the secret to this case is how W can afford to acquire such property and fund her outgoings.
If she works more than 16 hours she will get tax credits etc
What is her income on a monthly basis for
Working Tax Credit
Other state benefits?
C's ages so we can ascertain when the benefit income stream may end?
Crt has to try also to ensure you can acquire alt accom. not just live with parents!
