I want to divorce my vindictive wife and want to know if

Resolved Question:

Hi i want to divorce my vindictive wife and want to know if she can claim half of my savings even though she has more than me and a share in her mothers house.She can have everything in the house but not my small amount of savings .I need this to move into a rented property and she can stay here. We live in our sons home and his business pays all the bills including council tax so there is no outgoings for us to share. I agree to pay for this info but can only pay by debit card and it seems to only accept credit cards which i dont have You can email me on***@******.*** to sort payment but i will try once more to pay before i log off. thanks

Good morning Clare Been married 47 years but 30 have been misserable I stayed initially for the kids sake and then hit financial trouble and got stuck in a loveless situation with no money and had to compromise. i'm old fashioned and proud and dont believe the country should keep you so i didn't move out.Head down work hard and now have just a small £11,000 savings ,no debts, house assets only no property and an old car.We live seperatly in my sons house and he pays all the bills A good son ! so no outgoings! My only income is state pension £118 + private pension of £1117 per annum. My wife has same state pension + at least same amount of savings + a future share in a property worth at least £25,000 She can have all our shared assets but not my savings! but she in unreasonable and i think will try for them! John.

Hi
Id your ex has the same amount of savings as you then there will be no need for any capital division.
If she already owns the share in her mother's house you will not even need to share your pension with her - so long as you make no claim on that interest in the property.
If not then you may have to pay ongoing spouse maintenance from your private pension.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
