If I move out of the family home into rented, my stbx has assured me he will pay the rent, bills etc while the finances are sorted out, what does everyone think the main risks are? I have no income of my own and am reliant on his maintenance. I do not have a Consent Order just his written word, which has come with the "confidential and without prejudice'' heading so I will not be able to use this if anything goes wrong.
Get legal advise ASAP, if your stbx is giving your "offer" that he has thought to mark "without prejudice" then he has clearly had legal advise / done an awful lot of reading himself to know what this means (ie, that if you end up going to court, you can''t show the judge what he once offered you) and yet you only have his word that he will pay for bills rent etc. do you really think he can afford to pay bills etc for two households? Worse case: he doesn''t pay you end up homeless with a cr@p credit rating and lots of people chasing you for money.
