Customer Question

I have a girlfriend one child and one on the way. I have a mortgage both names on it. I keep being told to take my things and leave. My gf is on anti depressants and keeps arguing. There is never a stable month. I don't want to leave my kids to have peace. I don't want to leave my place either. She threatens to call the police and lie I am abusing her. So she gets custody of the kids and I pay child maintenance. I'm coming to the point of separation. But don't want to lose my kids or pay for a property I'm not staying in. She wants this place with out me. I'm not sure what to do.
