      Hi everyone. We are getting divorced, unfortunately. None of us have beem happy for a while. I was willing to work on it but her mimd is made up. I’m still living in the family home at the moment as her family are going to buy me out of the equity. Bit of a back story, her family paid for the deposit & legal fees at the time. The solicitor also drew up a trust deed to say the split of equity on the house would be 65/35 her. I didn’t sign it. Since I’ve lived with her, I’ve contributed financially to the mortgage and all bills. She’s not despite working part time.
      I’ve offered a 50/50 split of the equity, and for her to keep all the stuff in the house. However she thinks she is entitled to 65/35 & all the stuff in the house! Anyone else been in a similar situation? We are sitting down to discuss best way forward for this and joint custody for our 5 year old boy on Thursday evening. I’ve seen things where she is suggesting because I work full time and go running 3 times a week that our boy wouldn’t get the right care and attention from being ewith me 50% of the time. Although she has the backing of a wealthy family. She has no money herself and is currently not working. I feel she is just trying to see how much child benefit she can push for rather than come up with a proper plan that works for us both.
