Ok, thanks for the reply.
Male, 46, earning £31k basic per year.f/t
Femail, 39, earning £9330 basic per year p/t
One Child, age 13.
Currently, Male earnings go into his Bank Account, which then transfers the required monthly amount to cover direct debits etc, including mortgage of £599.00 + £60.00 loan on mortgage as well. Mortgate has 14 years left to run.
All outgoings financially, including Foodbill = £1850.00 per calendar month.
Outstanding amounts on mortgage = £101,000
It has been suggested, that taking into account Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Benefit, Council tax benefit etc, the femail WOULD have in theory a salary of £26k...which if a bank would provide a mortgage for this, in theory, she would only require a deposit of around £15 - £20k to allow her to do this.
My feeling on this, is that the Female, automatically assumes that I am prepared to go along with this for the welfare of our child, which is actually a form of blackmail. I have also suggested, that I take on the financial aspects of the seperation, (as I am doing currently), and therefore I remain in the property until our daughter leaves full time education, but this suggestion has fallen on deaf ears.
Please let me know, if I have missed anything.
