I was advised on Friday my husband has a solicitor and that I should I expect contact from them (he said yesterday).
How long will I need to wait for the first contact?
I have been subjected to emotional abuse for years and I am
Seriously worried about the mind games and lies that will be part of this process.
House is mortgaged 60k. 9 years left joint names. Resale value 90k.
6 children aged between 4 and 15. Child support payments calculator suggests £900 per month.
I am full time house wife minimal just set up as self
I have just signed up for universal credits.
What would be fair way to split Finances. He has hidden debts that I don’t know about.
We were married 18 years
He has family working in a solicitors specialising in family law and rebate. So I doubt he would confirm in writing that he has instructed a solicitor if he hasn’t. However, he would twist when I could expect the contact to prolong my anxiety.
The asserts are the house (90k value 60k mortgage) one mpv van (4K) in his name, his motorbike (2k). I have the £300 car and maybe £600 sewing machines. He earned 60k for the last two years. Has pension. He also has debts. I don’t know how much as he has several credit cards that he has hidden from me. And a bank loan.
Has he made any indication of how he wants to settle? Perhaps his solicitor may outline this when contact eventually comes, it's not unusual for letters and contact from solicitors to take longer to finalise than expected. Give it another week, then maybe write to him.
With 6 children, I can't see any solution other you staying in the house. Looks like his pension could be the biggest asset, but the house the most important one from your point of view.
Has he moved out of the property? Can you afford the mortgage payments with CMS and universal credit income?
