Can they be registered at my address for certain things eg GP, NHS and her address for other things eg. school, sports clubs? or can they only have one official address? That said she insists that her address should be the primary one. She also proposes i see the kids twice during the week after school and every other week end. If i accept both her requests would i end up in a weaker position now or further down the line?
If we agree to share the costs relating to the children (50/50) but then changes her mind could she be ordered to do so? she earns 100k+ i earn considerably less.
Who holds on to the passeports? what if she goes to the USA with them and once there decides no to return to the UK, what could i do then? can i somehow prevent that from ever happening?
I have received a Draft divorce petition from my wife's solicitor.
My wife earn in excess of £100k and I earn around 18-24k. I am set to inherit approx 500K.
On the petition there is a section entitled
(3) Financial Order (if you wish to make an application for a Financial Order)x(a) That the Petitioner may be granted the following Financial Order(s):xan order for maintenance pending suit/outcomexperiodical payments orderxsecured provision orderxlump sum orderxproperty adjustment orderxorder under section 24B, 25B or 25C of the Matrimonal Causes Act of 1973/paragraph 15, 25 or 26 of Schedule 5 to the Civil Partnership Act of 2004 (Pension Sharing/Attachment Order) or section 25F or section 21B of the 1973 Act or paragraph 19B or paragraph 34A of the 2004 Act (Pension Compensation Sharing/Attachment Orders)x(b) For the childrenxa periodical payments orderxa secured provision orderxa lump sum orderxa property adjustment order
She has ticked all the boxes! now in view of our incomes and the fact that i have been the primary carer of our children because i work from home what can she really expect to receive financially from me?
