I have separated from my husband of 22 years and am staying with friends. We have three sons together who are staying living with him, ages 18, 19 and 21. He works as a Geologist month on month off earning £200k. I'm trying to work out how much I need to live on...Am I entitled to a monthly allowance from him, if so how much approx? We have just bought our own home last august for £415k, he will remain living in the house with the boys.
I'm actually a housewife right now and not in employment.
We have a mortgage, yes, still owe about £380k
We just bought our first house last August, up until then we rented.
No there are no other assets
Hi, I'm doing a volunteer ambulance transport service job, I get paid expenses usually around £600 per month.
I'm a trained counsellor and could earn £30 per hour, hours depending on whether I worked at a doctors surgery or had a shared practice or I could make and sell stained glass artwork.
Hi I'm 42 and he's 49. No pension though, it was cashed in a while ago.
He's an Oil field Operations Geologist (consultant).
Yes in between jobs...it was a while ago.
Hi yes two of our sons went to private school for several years, £15k each per year, this set us back quite a lot! Yes you're right on the work front for me too, he never wanted me to work as he earns enough so I've just been making stained glass windows etc and doing Counselling course and part time volunteer driving job to keep busy.
No I do not wish to remain in the property, the boys are settled here and it's me who wants out.
I'd carry on doing what I'm doing now to be honest.
