Hello My husband and I got married in Aug 2011 and have a 15 month old daughter, we all live together, the house is mortgaged in his name, he works full time, I have almost finished a diploma in counselling. I am very unhappy in our marriage, with him and his interfering mother (no violence). I am considering getting a divorce but am afraid of where this leaves me. My family and friends live in Nottm and we live in Banbury, so I would want to move back home with our daughter. Would I have to go into f/t work? Would I necessarily automatically be allowed to take our daughter with me? Can I change mine and her surnames to my maiden name? What would I do for accommodation? Thank you.
We are currently on the market at £175,000 as we've been trying to move since our daughter was 8 weeks old.
There is approx £90,000 left on the mortgage.
The only other asset is the 7 seater E-reg Ford Galaxy but I can't drive.
My husband earns approx £2,500 per month after tax.
My 'earnings' are £200 per month from my husband and £80 per month child benefit for our daughter.
My husband would have full contact as I don't want to separate them, and I'm guessing visits every alternate weekend. Alternate Christmases and birthdays and every Fathers Day.
I've had a quick look on the Right Move website and 2 bedroomed houses in Nottingham are around £40,000, albeit in the less pleasant areas.
Before I became a Mummy and counselling student I was an Administrative Assistant earning £900 per month after tax. I last worked in this area in April 2012.
Can I expect my answer now please?
