there is much much more to it than just if you can stay there or if it''s a split. Is the house mortgaged and if so, who is paying the mortgage? Is he happy for you to stay there? Would you be able to pay the mortgage and bills? Would you be happy for him to pay the mortgage on the house so you and the children can stay there in exchange for child maintenance? There is really a lot more to it...
Thanks for your reply.I am 48,my husband is 41.We have two children aged 7 and 11 who at the moment stay with me all the time,their Dad visits on a regular basis.We have been married for 7 years and lived together for 5 years before getting married. I have no income ,my husband earns between £28000-£30000 per year.Our monthly outgoing are approx £1300 a month for everything. The only asset we have is the house which is worth £150000(about £90000) after we pay of mortgage.Yes i am looking for work but it needs to fit around school hours
Your husband is not a high earner and I''m betting the £1300 puts a dent in his income.
He will need to pay you CM - but this is a moot point as I expect he''s still going to be paying for everything for the time being, but you don''t want to rely on this because you don''t know how long it will last.
I understand the need for a job that works round the kids, but I think this may greatly help your argument to stay in the house.
he wont discuss it properly until i see what benefits i can get,I have applied for a job within school but even if i get it ,it`s only £50 per week.He would idealy like to sell the house and take his 50% of the pofit to buy a new house with his girlfriend and me and the kids go into rented accomadation but im refusing to do that
