He lives with his parents who are both elderly and wealthy
Now the problem, the guy firmly believes that because his wife ended the marriage the house should be sold, money split 50-50 she have no claim on his pension and only CM be payed, he believes court would have a moral duty to agree this proposal.
I think he''s daft if he thinks he''ll get 50:50 and no SM.
20% of his 4k pm is £800 - so that will cover the mortgage and some SM ontop could keep her in the FH.
I doubt she''d get a mortgage on her income, so would say she stays put, esp with the ages of the kids.
With CM & SM she should be able to take over the mortgage/bills etc and he should still have enough to find somewhere else. Not life SM, though, just for a few years to get her back on her feet.
Problem is her keeping the house, him keeping his pension .......... is that fair? both valued at £100k but the pension is so far off for him, but earning £4k net pm, I suppose he could save for a reasonable deposit in a year or 2.
