Im not sure i have done the right thing and would like your advice before i go through the divorce process.....
X2b and i split, house was worth £190k with a £132k mortgage, took out further advance and gave x2b £30k. (felt very pressurised into doing this, some might say bullied) Also gave him £1200 from some work shares (half)
We were going to go DIY divorce as i just wanted everything over with BUT
I work p/t bringing in £6k, new partner (part time student) brings in £15k. He pays 15% cm for his child. We recieve tax credit top up of about £40 week. I have no pension
My x2b earns?????, he pays £275 CM for my 2 children, who he has 2 nights a week. He has a pension worth about £40k. (I know his wages are none of my business)
He's just buying new property with new partner.
DIY was going to be no sm, no share of his pensions, just the child maintanence.
Want to move on, but what do you think...... I really dont want to do anything silly.
So you sold the FMH and ended up with 58K and then you let him have 30K? slightly more than 50%
okay you don't say how long you were married but i would think you may well be entitled to some of that depending on what your exact circumstances are.
sadly it seems to me you have given more away than you should have already?
It might be a good idea to go and see a solicitor try and find one that gives you a free initial hour.It doesn't sound as thought he's playing fair and is going to walk all over you if you let him!
I'm self repping and there are times it's very draining! but then of course i cant imagine there are many people who are likely say the divorce process is a pleasant experience regardless of how you do it!
I really think you should seek some advice. Good luck
