Hi all hope you can help with this question as I''m unsure whether to I would be entitled to anything financially from my ex or even if it''s worth going for anything as now I just want the divorce done and sorted, I''m also not out to financially ruin him......a bit of background
I left 3 years ago and he stayed in the FMH (4 bedroom house) for a while with the children (I was still caring for them but not staying overnight), after 5 months or so I wanted my own place so asked for my half of the equity from the mortgage (£50''000) and purchased 2 bedroom property for me and the girls. I took nothing of value from the home just pictures, a bed but furnished my own house slowly over the last 2 years but did take my car. I have no pension, he has a couple of private ones but I doubt they have lot in them, I earn £25''000 with cb, tax credits and cm taken into account, he earns approx £40''000 with a company car with petrol included. I have no debts or savings (I''ve just used what savings I had to put a bathroom in my house) not sure about him now, he was never good with money so when I left he was about £5000 in debt and I honestly can''t see that changing. He does have a girlfriend who stays approx 5 nights a week but refuses to formally move in until we divorce but as soon as the divorce is through she''ll be in.
Thanks, the divorce is already going through with him instigating it based on 2 years separation and I''ve consented, should have the Nisi in a couple of weeks so it''s just the financials if any to sort out.
