Divorce - now what?

Andwhatnextnowthenourkid · 23/01/2022 12:29

I'll try and keep this to the point.

H and I own a house together with around £230,000 left to pay on the mortgage. We have an 8 year old so I work part time and do all child arrangements, school drop off etc, H has his own company and earns double my wage if not more.

This weekend has been the final straw and we are now looking at separating. What happens?

I spent last night looking at local houses to rent, as I wouldn't get a solo mortgage on my wage and houses half the size of mine are more expensive to rent but I couldnt afford my house alone. I know I will have to move out but can anyone advise on where I stand with eligibility for any help, guidance etc?

I know I need to speak to a solicitor which I plan to do next week, but I'd like to get my ducks in a row.

Child maintenance will also come into play I assume?
