Just wanted to check you received the further information. You are the only one who has asked for this additional information which re-assures me as I have never used this service before. For additional info my wife also receives from the state circa £600 per month so she has a net spendable income of £1,500 per month as her monthly income from work is around £300 per month and she has no mortgage.
Hi, Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but was confused as someone else asked for further info but hasn't come back to me.
Further information for consideration is:
My matrimonial home was sold for £215,000 and the mortgage on it was £72,000
We were together for 24 years
My wife has an income of £300 per month plus she gets £600 per month in benefits, plus £600 per month from me which I have agreed will continue if/until my daughter completes higher education (she has just turned 13). This amount will also be inflation linked. There are no savings left as used for house purchase.
My wife has agreed I can keep my Final Salary pension which will repay my mortgage and give me a £10,000 per annum income. I have agreed to give her a money purchase pension pot woth £70,000, which added to her pot comes to £100,000. At age 55 this is estimated to give her a pension of circa £7000.
She has since found herself a sleeping partner (hurts but thats life), which was a bit sudden bearing in mind, she asked me if it was ok to go to dinner with him on the 11th Jan
Let me know if you need anything else
Ooops!! My monthly income after tax and NI is £2289
Did the further information that I sent you regarding the rest of the arrangements help in further clarifiying my position. Do you think I ahve been fair and would a judge see this as a fair split.
Thank you Claire
Would we be able to do the majority of the divorce proceeding ourselves without involving solicitors. Reason being Neither of us have much capital and we cant afford to borrow money which would result in effecting our daughters future (she is a national latin and ballroom champion - a very costly proffesion). How much of the process could we do ourselves
Thank you Claire you have been most helpful
