Why should you move out? What did you do so wrong?

The grounds that you should pursue are for a divorce on his Unreasonable Behaviour. There is a significant disparity in your incomes and you have the care of your daughter to think about. On that basis, you should be seeking a greater share of the assets. Because you have been married a long time, the normal starting point for the division of assets is 50:50. Starting point note.

Have you read the WIkivorce step-by-step divorce guide? Top of page in 'Resources' menu

You need to post up a lot more information about your circumstances in order for someone to give you an idea of what is a fair and equitable separation of your finances.
So his / your income, value of house, outstanding mortgage, his / your pension,, any other significant assets or savings over £500, any loans or debts, whether personal or marital

Or post them into the Wikivorce calculator:


It is not a pleasant time, and there are lots of people here who will happily give support or advice - just ask.

Best of luck

I agree wiyh all the girls here and recommend not to leave your House. It was so attractive to me also in the begining of divorce to leave house as soon as possible but everybody I know adviced me not to leave. Thanks to them all, I know now why this advice was and how it was very difficult if I left the house for me and the children.
Good Luck
