No, ex-husband-number-1 will not be liable. He will still have to pay child maintenance of course, but his obligations to house her and the kids by means of a lump sum payment would have ended when they signed their Consent Order. Especially since she has re-married. Nope, going after him is definitely a wild goose chase.
With the house that needs to be provided, am I fully liable, or is ex-husband-number1 partially liable?
With £300k equity, £130k income, 3 kids and a long history of living in non-rented accommodation, no, a court would never consider ordering her into rented accommodation in a million years.
And, does it have to be bought outright, or is rental an option that a Court would consider.
If you are paying child maintenance for these 2, then it will be relevant in that regard. You can contact the CSA with your details to get accurate info, but to the best of my knowledge, you pay 25% of your income for 3 kids. The mother of the first 2 would get 2/3 of that amount, and your current wife would get 1/3.
I have two 18 year old daughters from a previous relationship, that live with their mother, so probably not relevant.
