Hi Mark,
Its a joint mortgage....therefore....a joint responsibility to pay.
When I left FMH I was assessed as unable to pay and agreed to have this taken into account in the division of the "pot". My x has dragged the proceedings on for 8 years and I have left him paying the full £130 per month mortgage on account that I was starting over with the clothes I wore wen I left and had housing needs of my own.
There are many legal, financial, moral and personal debates/views and outcomes regards your issue.....if you post more info re kids, resources and such...there are many here who can help
