Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.
How much would a cheaper three bedroom property in the same school area cost to buy?
For clarity - there are no cheaper three bedroom houses in the school area?
How much is your current property worth?
Are you aware that the site charges more for phone calls?
Are you willing to sell your property?
What income does your ex have?
Would you rather live in Bristol or Cardiff?
Where do you wish to live with the children?
How much notice do you need to give the tenants an dhow much is that house worth?
What income do you/can you earn - apart from the rent for the property?
What will you be able to earn when you are able to go back - or do you need to retrain?
How long will that take and what could you earn at the end of it?
My apologies for the delay
In the event that you divorce then there is no reason why you shoudl not return to your property in Cardiff if that is where you wish to live.
However if your ex wishes to retain the matrimonial home then he will have to pay you a lump sum settlement; Child maintenance at 16% of his gross income (at most) and
Spouse Maintenance to allow you to retrain and support you until you are able to maintain yourself - possibly for up to five years
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
That is a little difficult to judge
It is likely to be a split of the two equities added together.
If you want to have spouse maintenance then a 50/50 split is most likely
