Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Could you explain a little more about the situation please
Do you want a divorce?
What income do you each have?
How much has your ex asked for?
£7,000 plus a year?
Where does she think that will come from?
The difference in your incomes means that your wife does have a potential spouse maintenance claim - even without a divorce.
However the amount that she has asked for is absurd given your income and clearly exceeds her reasonable needs - these are the two factors that the court will bear in mind in any calculation
Please ask if you need further details
