Customer Question

Married 3 years, house mine in my name with all mortgage and bills paid by me. Wife comes fr Ukraine and now has permanent leave to remain. She has a son aged 15. I have been advised that a straightforward divorce would award very little of my estate to her as she came into the marriage with nothing but what implication does the son have on the divorce? I am willing to offer a generous sum if she agrees to a straightforward divorce
