I didnt think I would be entitled to the above, but now thinking that maybe I would be!
Is there a certain percentage when it comes to spousal maintenance, like there is for child maintenance ie 25% of earnings for 3 or more children.
I have been married for 17.5 years, have 4 children aged between 9 and 16. One of my children is disabled and receives higher rate dla for both care and mobility. My Husband left me 7 weeks ago, he has been having an affair with someone at work. I didnt realize that she had left her own husband earlier on in the year.
I receive carers allowance,
When my Husband left, I understood that he was renting somewhere by himself, turns out that he and T have moved in together.
do you think I would be entitled to Spousal Maintenance?
As Monitor441 you'll have to post figures - the same as found on form E.
All income includes benefits and savings. The benefits you mention tend to be quite sizable (I used to work for the Benefits Agency) and would probably negate any SM. You may end up with the 'token' payment which I believe is set to a couple of pounds per year.
Also taking in to account the age of your children, they all must be at school, so any judge will expect you to support yourself and work a minimum of part-time during school hours.
All of these details will be provided by your solicitor should you use one.
me and the stbx had a verbal agreement that she would pay a secured loan and i would pay the mortgage and the credit cards the amounts were 55/45% in her favour. she has not paid anything in 13 months. i have a copy of the direct debit she set up to pay it then cancelled it before the first payment, can this be used as a written agreement between us to make here pay what we agreed on
