So....another question (I've posted a few times before)...
STBXH earns £45k and I earn £35k. If we sell house and pay off mortgage and joint loan (our only debts) we will be left with around £50k equity.
I'd like to try and get him to agree to a split so we don't have to go to court. My solicitor has said that because I earn less and will be resident parent to our DS, I should get more of the share of the equity....but what should I suggest?
If Its all down to us being 'housed' appropriately should I look at each of our abilities to get a mortgage? Because if (for example) we each get 4x our salary then STBXH could get a mortgage for £180k whereas mine would only be £140k. Therefore wouldn't I be entitled to most of the equity? Or is there another way of working it out?
