Does anyone have a clear idea of how the courts will really divide assets?
When I married my 2bx I owned a flat (now worth quite a bit more than it did 5 years ago when we got married),held a pension and had quite a lot in savings.
My 2bx didn't have own a property and had cashed in some of his savings to invest in a business that went wrong.
I supported him for first year and a half of marriage so he could pay off the debts he accumulated , but then had to stop working through ill health.He supported me for next 2 years until last year when I was able to go back to work, which I had to do as he was no longer working and we were broke.
2bx had also invested in another business during the marriage and had lost money on that too.
I work part time (I am disabled),2bx no longer in marital home and does not contribute to mortgage or bills. I on low salary but fortunate to get DLA which helps with bills. He working part-time altho in full health. I am worried thatI am going to lose my home and not be able to afford anything suitable for me to live in in my condition (which will deteriorate with time.) Any thoughts?
