I was married 10 years and there are 2 children ages 10 and 6.
The children both reside with me and the oldest stays overnight 1 night a fortnight.
I earn £2300 a month including child benefit.
Stbx states earnings of £800 a month (self employed). Ex works 6 /7 days a week so I doubt this is true.
I moved out of the FMH due to domestic abuse. No bills were paid so it was repossessed and sold. There is a shortfall of £53000 to cover.
There was also a joint loan of £9000.
I have had to get an Iva so I am paying towards all of the debts
I provide a roof over my children head and all costs are covered by me I was getting £43 a month csa but that has stopped last payment received was February.
I am now renting and have no spare money at the end of the month once debts and everything else is covered.
My question is could I end up paying spousal maintanence?
I am very worried about this as I can''t afford to pay.
Any advice greatly received. Thank you for reading.
