How do you go about getting divorced when neither of you can afford to move out. Fairly typical scenario, I'm the main earner in the family. House bought >10 years ago so has equity. I commute to work a ways away daily. Not enough money to move out and live either closer to work or near the marital home and continue to commute/work. Can't believe I'm the only one in this situation.
Details: Married almost 20 years, two lovely kids under 15.
Grounds are UB.
I don't want to leave my children but things have just broken down over the last two years.
There are on line divorces that are a dam site cheaper than using a soliciter which firstly cuts the costs, use the resources in this site to help you also.
Most men unless they are high earners end up in bed sits or back with parents/relations it is unfortunate that in most cases where children are involved when the total of all assests are put in pot to be shared men end up with between 30-40% of the pot.
One of the options you may have if youve not looked into it is to move into a rented caravan or buy a cheap one and put it on a site to live in, some places do allow you to live in them all year round, others in the closed season say you can only stay in them during the day at night you have to find accommodation elsewhere.
