We have been married for 39 years, separated 14 years, both children now adult over 21's
Sorry for delay had a computer crash!
For many years we lived separately but as I said it was very amicable and he is currently very unwell with heart problems so as a family we decided he could live under our roof but of course in a separate bedroom. He pays a small amount by way of room rent and a small proportion towards household bills whilst he is here. If all goes well and he recovers he will probably move out again so this is short term only. Otherwise all our monies are entirely separate. His income from part time work etc plus pension go into his account only to which we of course have no access whatsoever.
Since the last 8 months, he is due for an op later this week and dependant upon this is how much longer it will be. If I ask him to move out he would be alone and we are afraid that something might happen.
If the claim goes against him then he will not have sufficient assets to meet it.
