We have been together for 29 years and have been married for nearly 25 years. We have been working on contract in different countries for the past 14 years, so only my husband has been earning the money as wives could not get work permits in the countries that we have lived in.
Sorry, I forgot to say that we are separating, so we need to work out the finances. Depending on which country he is working in, he earns approx. £5000.00 to £6000.00 per month
In your opinion, if my husband was earning £6000.00per month and has agreed to pay the house bills of approx. £900.00. When I get a job he is expecting me to pay the mortgage of £850.00 per month. Am I right in asking him to give me an extra £1500.00. This is for living expenses, fuel and savings for old age.
My husband is 58 and I am 55. His gross income was £72000.00 and mine would be approx. £10200 per annum.
We own 2 houses which we are still paying mortgages for, but would keep them and sell them at a later date, obviously splitting the amounts once sold. To settle our separation could we do it through a mediator or would we have to do it through the courts.
Would you be able to advise me of Mediators in the Glouscester or Cheltenham areas.
If we go to a mediator and settle on an amount according to the amount my husband is paid at the time, then a year later he accepts another contract with a higher pay. Can I then alter my amount of maintenance. How would I know if my husband is being truthful about the income he is bringing in.
