Thank you so much for getting back to me
they have been married for 24yrs the property is worth £190,000.The man has been paying more on the mortgage and there is £80,000 remaining. he also owns a house with her brother that his daughter lives in but the brother said that he will buy him out. She has never paid a penny towards the mortgage and does not contribute to any bills the money she earns goes in her pocket and does not contribute to any household bills. he is devastated and wants to play fair but she said that she will fleece him and could take him for 75% but seems she wants it all anyway.. He has a little savings as he has always been a family man and also pays for the holidays. He has recently paid for a holiday for them but due to circumstances is unable to go now although she is going with her family. We said that he should have a break to get away because he is so low in mood, but he is afraid of spending any money on himself in case he is breaking the law.
hi again. I do not know what income they have but he is obviously earning a lot more than her. He has a trade and she does taxiing for her family but she is a mobile hairdresser but does not disclose this income to her husband but is out most days. The second home is joint between the man and his wife's brother I would think it is about £80,000 between them, which is about £40,000 each but the man put this on his mortgage but his wife wants half of that as well. Why can't he put all of this off the mortgage as this why the mortgage was increased in the first place and this would bring it down to a more affordable level as she will get the lions share anyway. He wants to look after his children but why should he have to declare everything and not his wife. This I am afraid appears to be a discrimination against men.
I am sorry but I was lead to believe this was a private conversation from an expert in law I now feel a little mislead on this. How can it not be legal advice if the response is from a solicitor. It says that you are a solicitor and if not I would appreciate you delete all this as I thought this was a private conversation and not a public forum as this could be recognised by someone who should not now about this. I feel dispaired by this and feel I have broken someones confidence I did not see the disclaimer until now.
