Please do not worry - your one payment covers all the exchange to ensure I have all necessary informationWould the boys stay with their father if you left?

Thank u yes i would think so x
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
HiYours is a short to medium length relationship and that means that you do have a financial claim on the Matrimonial home.However the fact that he has the children living with him and that you brought little capital to the relationship does limitthat claim.Realistically you would do well to get 30% of the equity - anything over 20% would be worth accepting,- especially if he is paying it immediately.I woudl suggest that you try and discuss matters with him using Family Mediationwww.familymediationhelpline.co.ukI am not sure if this covers all that you need to know - so please ask if you need more detailsClare
