Hi everyone. I’ve been visiting these forums for weeks now and can see there's many on here who like me have suffered recent pain and heartache. I wish you all the best.
My question…..My wife and I split almost two yrs ago with no one else involved (still amicable). Since then I have happily been paying the mortgage and a couple of hundred pounds on top for anything she made need for our 3 kids. About a year ago she met someone new and wants to move him in TFH but feels guilty as I am still paying the mortgage and to be honest I would find it emotionally difficult to pay with him living there anyway.
I have offered them the chance to buy out my half of the equity and let them take over the house once the latest term is up. I then relinquish any claim to the house. I would of course increase what I was paying in maintenance to cover some of her loss of income from me.
I assume if she went to the CSA I would have to pay the mortgage on top of maintenance anyway so hopefully this is the best option for both of us. I can move on in my life without such a big financial burden and she can move him in guilt free, get on with their lives and the home is safe for our kids.
Is this the right thing to?
The CSA will only calculate maintenance payments for the children. They do not get involved with anything else.
Your ex wife is not automatically entitled to any additional maintenance from you - especially if she has a new partner to support her!!
