My husband and I are separating and we are having a dispute with regard to the division of our home.
14 years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and received 47k critical illness payout on my individual policy. I paid individual and joint debts, for renovations to our home and 25k off our mortgage.
Now that we are separating i believe that i should have the insurance money plus 50% of the equity in the house.
I stopped working 9 years ago because of my illness, this is why the insurance was paid in the first place, because of the nature of the illness. I have still contributed financially to the household redundancy x2 inheritance x2 benefits etc. I also have to house our daughter.
My husband is still able to work and I have not asked for any of his future earnings or pension, he earns a good wage for our area.
Do you believe this is fair, unfair or me being a mug?
House is worth 185-190k mortgage 42k.
