I have no idea what my husband's new partner earns. I know that she only works 18 hours a week, whereas I work 24.
I earn £1220 per month from my job
The children are 8yrs and 12yrs old.
£59,000 he is self employed but he actually earns more but claims lots of expenses.
He can't afford the pay the mortgage on this family home as well as contribute to his partners house.
We are going through a divorce and he desperately wants to sell the family house so he can buy a new one with his partner and her children.
I also want to sell the house and we have agreed on the percentage split but he only wants to pay £295 a month for child maintenance, (once he has the children 6 nights out of 14 - although no one believes he will be able to fulfil this obligation) so I have delayed the marketing of the house until other issues of the divorce have been finalised. I feel like I'm being blackmailed by him.
£53,000 left to pay.
Are we diverting from my original question?
All I need to know is, if my husband can stop paying child maintenance and make me pay half the mortgage and all the household bills?
