Hi I left my exH 3 years ago, due to his alcohol problem and abusive nature, with my 3 young DCs. Several months before I left, I quit my job, after a bout of depression, and I no longer contributed to the mortgage. We are now trying to sort out finances, and he states I owe Â£9000ish in unpaid mortgage and insurance.
When I left I took out a tenancy, and was paying Â£750 PCM on rent. He started paying maintenance several months after I left.
Whilst I understand the mortgage was a joint liability, I wasn't paying before I left.
Seeing my solicitor next week to discuss, but would appreciate any advice etc, thanks.
