Hi Clare,I bought the property for 475K GBP, and it's now worth 700K GBP. It is a large 2 beds flat and property in this area are worth a similar amount... a smaller 2 beds flat can be worth maybe around 400K GBP. Outstanding in the mortgage only 35K GBP. I forgot to mention that the possible reason why we can split up is that she cheated with a work colleague, and she's now refusing to change job. She's spending extra time unpaid at work for the sake of "her career", while the salary she's got is very modest compared to mine... Thanks
I earn 157,500 gross (+bonus depending on the year). She does earn 26K gross. I pushed her to change job (I can made her hired at a place similar where I work), but she's not interested now as she's just been promoted... and this new responsibility takes away a lot of family and mum time. My issue is that it's not worth it from a money point of view, cause the nursery alone costs 15,000 GBP plus the cost of the cleaner and of the baby sitter (that i regularly afford).
Thanks. How much are we talking about please in term of child maintain ance please? (worst case scenario, in percentage or better absolute monetary amount).
Also, would it be acceptable for me to buy a studio or 1 bed apartment and offer her to live there?
Many thanks for your answer Clare, just a last thing please and we are done. What would had been the percentage of the gross income if we had 2 children?
