My husbands salary is approx. £38,000 pa and mine is approx. £11,000 pa. if I stay here working, if I return to the UK I will be unemployed. We don't own any property and have roughly £3,000 savings and debts of the same amount.
We have two cars in the UK worth a maximum of £9,000 and one over here worth about £9,000.
Hopefully this helps
My daughters school fees are £10,185 (6555 OMR) per annum for years 10 and 11 rising to £11,933 (7680 OMR) per annum for years 12 and 13.
My son is completing his final year of sixth form and will be starting University in Sidcup, Kent this October. He is in the process of arranging student finances, although the University does not have residence therefore would be out in the local community costing between £100 - £150 per month for student accommodation.
Accommodation in Oman varies from £389 per month (250 OMR) whereby I would need transport to continue working as these are 25 miles (40 km) away or nearer work rent is upwards of £700 per month (450 OMR), these would still need transport but are much closer to work and school. These costs are based on a 2 bed apartment for myself and my daughter.
Purchasing a car and running costs per annum are approx. £2,553 (1,643 OMR) and food would cost approx. £2,300 (1,500 OMR).
I feel to continue living and working in Oman I would need roughly £19,500 (12,500) which is almost double which I currently earn.
When he leave I think the settlement is roughly £30,000, although not sure if this is a one off payment on top of his pension which will be approx. £12,000 pa.
He joined the Armed Forces at 16 in 1986 and is currently on a 5 years extension which finishes in 2016. We married in 1992, therefore married 22 years next month. We have been together for 25 years altogether.
He's had a couple of interviews with recruitment agencies, the vacancies he discussed with them are around £25,000 per annum along with his pension gives a total earnings per year roughly as his Armed Forces salary.
I have seem paperwork suggesting he buys his girlfriends sister's share of the house they currently live in, although I'm not sure if this has progressed. This address is where he has some mail delivered to and I have seem an electoral role change of address for that address too.
If I am unable to continue working abroad due to financial reasons, would any of the information you have provided change?
