hi first time on here,well cut it short-separated 3 yrs ago and finally this week he signed divorce papers. we only married 2 yrs but were seein each other for 12yrs,we have 2 children ages 12-6. we had our mortgage for only 18months b4 he left,which i payed half to (mortgage 42000) ,anyway he been gone 3 yrs and has not contributed a penny to house,and now he wants 50% of the equity in the house...WHY WHY WHY..if he been helping fair enough.they took me for repossesion and he just laughed..how when he has 2 children.I got my 1st csa payment 12months after he gone £34 a week for his 2 children,ITS A JOKE. My head is so up my arse- should he be contributing - what is he entitled to - and now they want me 2 go to mediation - hard 1 want, and all he pays out is £25 week keep to his mum. any advice would be helpful,thank you
Firstly who tried to take your house? Mortgage company or the courts? I know from my divorce he has not paid for 18 months and told mortgage company he wont pay a penny. He also wants everything and has never paid a mortgage payment 7 years however his name is on the mortgage.
Emptied the house of valuables and have not seen him 18 months.
Try to go CAB for legal advise any numbers that are free are good. Otherwise mine is costing more than a wedding not good.
Have you tried cccs councelling service for a bit of help with the budget you have.
Otherwise you could take him to court and ask mortgage interim payments until divorce.
mortgage company tried ,but i told them i could keep payments up once i sorted myself out..he also told them he not paying a penny, his name on mortgage 2,We have to go to mediation now. I have gone 2 working 18 hrs a week when i use to work 30,i have no one for the children now,he just keeps saying he wants half,in my eyes he should have to contribute then..i dont no anymore
hi i wanted quick but he has dragged it out for 3 yrs,since he gone he not paid penny towards or contributed to the house,not even said here kids heres a tenner get something...and i would split if he paid something towards the house.We only had mortgage 18 months b4 he left paid 4 grand off it in that time now he wants half.My mortgage is 42 grand but the house is worth 140grand..i want to move but cant afford to pay him pay debts and rehouse my self and kids with whats left.uniforms to get i asked him to help..point blank no the 35 a week i get off him is enough he said..just had enough it keeps going on and on.surely he should be contributin something to the mortgage his name on it to.now been told mediation could take up to 7 sessions with him,and if that not work then go court,then that could take months to get there,i cant go through another 12months of not noing.
