I''m separated with 2 young kids and living in the FMH. The mortgage & deeds are both in stbx''s name as were all the bills though I am paying them now in my sole name with stbx responsible for ground rent, rates (NI version of council tax) and mortgage. I receive no CM payments obviously.
Now I know the stbx wants me out and will not commit himself to any financial details as regards CM until I move out. Needless to say I''m loathe to move out and possibly find myself in a very bad financial position while he gets to stay in a decent house and pay me peanuts. At present he is renting, paying private CM to 1st ex and paying mortgage. Rent for me would be easily 3 times the CSA minimum guidelines so it''s a no brainer that I stay here as long as possible.
What possible underhanded tactics could he use to get me out e.g.
- declaring himself bankrupt
- having family buy him another property while he defaults on this one
- occupancy order
- some kind of compulsary sale order?
What effect would these things have on me & him? My worst fear is that he goes self-employed or declares himself bankrupt to minimise what he has to pay me but I know his family will support him financially so he''ll never lose out. It''s sad but given the last year, I have to presume the worst so hit me with the gory details folks
