Please...I need advice..
had zoom court appointment yesterday....briefly.. im in 70k debt mainly because of ex...(I had better credit score)we sold house with 112k equity....official separation date is 2016 ive been told he wants 45k where he will clear his own personal debts. Ones he's had since 3ish years ago.... I can have the rest of equity...if I do ...once paid debts ive nothing left. We have a family business and I have a small amount of inheritance.
I just feel why should I pay his recent credit card debts..hes not been able to produce much in the way of paperwork cause most money is cash in hand....I was also under domestic abuse and told not to do mediation
.. and cause of that its costing a fortune with solicitors..ive had to pay 4k to go into refuge.....and I had to see him in zoom call....im really struggling today...
evening....its so unfair as i left because of me ex 's drinking....and i feel hes coming up smelling of roses where ive been dealt the knocks.
hes always had that figure in his head...not sure why.
i thought splitting the equity first to pay the marital debts in my name (ones we had as how we lived/his businesses) and then share whats left....but it seems his new debts ....ones hes mounted up in HIS NAME via credit cards since we split....but i think its unfair i have to pay towards them. things hes bought for himself.....as we both lived separatley.
