Hi ..i am currently seperated from my wife after leaving the marital home after my ex had an affair.( i was asked to)
we have a joint mortgage of which she had never paid a penny, nor contributed towards household bills..
she has not worked in 6 years due to looking after our daughter , but now she has started a job on a low wage.
i have continued to pay all household bills whilst being seperated, including a weekly allowance- due to wife not getting any benefits as she tried working self employed..(unsucessfully).
she has applied for working tax credits, but has been refused on the grounds that because i currently pay all the utility bills that we are still classed as a couple... i said i would support her until she''s got a job and working tax credits.
there is around 40,000 equity in the house, but neither of us could afford to remortgage to buy each other out. is there any way i could remove my name off the mortgage...in which it enables her to get working tax credits and myself having the funds to rent somewhere as i''m living with my parents..
