The divorce was finalised about 2 years ago.
It was never discussed. We had one mediation session which he manipulated so we didn't have anymore. I got so sick of him, I just signed the decree absolute form to get rid. In hindsight, I should have stuck it out.
He's been living with his parents for the last 7 years (since we separated) and is working full time, so has had ample opportunity to save, but understand he's very recently or in the process of moving. Not sure whether it's rented or bought. I just know he's moving in with his girlfriend. And no I haven't remarried, I'm single and staying that way.
Our house was sold prior to me leaving him. He was in a huge amount of debt, we had a second mortgage. There was only a small profit and this went towards the remaining debts. We then moved into rented, in joint names, but when he left there 2 or 3 months after I moved out, he also kept all the deposit.
I don't know whether this makes any difference, but the reason we sold the house is because he was caught fiddling his expenses at work, and was suspended while they carried out investigations (I have proof of this). I had only just started up a new business, so we needed the money.
I closed the new business and got a part time job and found somewhere to live and I made him go back to previous employers and beg them for a job, as we had children to feed!
Yes, he pays maintenance for 1 child. He's on £22,000 plus he has a company car, but he's recently moved across to another department so I don't know if this has changed.
Unfortunately, I fell quite ill about 2 years ago so am on benefits, but recently have been looking for part time work.
Hard to say, probably about £5,000. A lot of it had sentimental value, which I understand I can't do anything about.
Yes, it all helps.
