Advice needed on cheating wife(7 Posts)
I’m hoping someone can help me with some advice.
I was with my ex for 16 years, 3 kids, own our house & married for the last 5 years.
Around 3 years ago my wife went back to work after years out from having kids, not long after things changed & she was basically caught sending text messages to a colleague that suggested they’d spoke about sleeping together & sending topless photos. Also found out she was on Tinder sending saucy photos to strangers! We had it out but decided to give it another shot. Things didn’t go as planned & she then got caught using drugs!!
This was the final straw for me so I left the family home around 3 months ago.
I pay EVERY single bill on the house down too the TV License! She does not need to lift a finger but I sleep at night knowing my kids are safe. I also do £100 food shop a week & give the 3 kids £5 a day for school etc.
Thing is I’m actually living at work! It’s not as bad as it sounds but still need my own place.
We have plenty of equity in our house & suggested I take out some of this to be able to buy my own house whilst continuing to still pay the mortgage on her house.
She’s never paid a single mortgage payment but has point blank refused to let me do it.
Does anyone know where I stand with regards to what she’s entitled to & what I should be paying towards the 3 kids?
Hopefully someone can help me.
You need to go to see a solicitor about this.
You definitely need legal advice. Seems you're being taken for a ride at the moment
Get all financials (inc pensions) together, work out split and move on with your lives.
Look at cms calculator re child maintenance views and work out what you each need re housing that might help to start to frame ideas about splits
Legal advice is needed. If the plan is to leave and set up a separate household and she is refusing to let go of the equity in the house you need a court order to force the sale
You left the family home and three children with someone known to be using drugs????!!!!!
