my husband wants a divorce

Customer Question

my husband and I have been married for 22 months and he wants a divorce. he just said married life doesn't suit him. we live in a house together which is owned outright but my name isn't on the deeds. he has a business which turns over 3-4 mil/annum and pension funds of £760.000 I have 3 children from a previous marriage which he gladly took on. ages 17,18 19 one is at uni another is autistic and the youngest doing A levels. where do I stand financially?


 


I do not work as he was happy for me to look after the  children. I need to be there for my autistic child


when I came to the relationship I had nothing financially but I contribute to the house by being a good wife/mother and am always there for him in every way. we have been together 3.5 years.


I do not want a divorce.

Hi
No none at all. I walked away with nothing. Just my 3 children.

Hi
What other assets are there and what income do you each have?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Hello
My husband has shares in a limited company which he shares with a partner. It turns over 3 to 4 million pounds a year. He gadabout half a million pounds left in the company. He has £700,000 pounds invested in lloyds banking and his pension is worth £200,00 to £250,00.00

I have no investments as he looked after me.
My husbands business is doing very well and I have never needed to work. I have an autistic 18 yr old daughter so it is very difficult to work as she is not mentally her age and she is vulnerable.

He has always supported this decision and cares for her very much.

Hello
About £400,00 I would say.

We live in a 4 bed semi so I guess a 3 bed would be around £400 thousand pounds
