Our house has just gone on the market.
However, something I wasn''t expecting is that my wife has announced she''s moving out in 10 days. She''s moving to rented accommodation and taking our son. As she is the main breadwinner and has been for some time I''m concerned about any possible debt that may be incurred by either of us. I am unable to support the monthly outgoings and would need her to maintain her current level of financial input.
We are married and the house is under both names.
What rights do I have?
Or, what is my position in law as a spouse regarding this?
Thanks in advance.
She has said we can go through money side of things tomorrow. (she''s out now)
Sadly, my gut is telling me it''s something that''ll have a longer term impact on me than her.
Part of a plan to ensure I get less of everything in the long term?
If you are unable to pay the mortgage and she is not prepared to help out voluntarily, then you could apply for maintenance pending suit. It''s usually the wife/PWC that does this but there''s no reason why you couldn''t do it. Whether it''s awarded or not would depend on the figures.
