Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How long have you lived together, what income do you each actually have, and what is the value of the Capital assets.
NO that is good thank you
One last thing - how much does a one bedroom property in the same general area cost to buy?
In the event that the move does bring your marriage to an end the worst case scenario is that your husband will receive a larger share of the equity in the property
in lieu of any spouse maintenance due to the difference in your earnings.
This could be a 60/40 split which will also allow him to rehouse himself.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
It would be sensible to ensure that you have copies of up to date bank statements, and ensure that you make the mortgage payments via a bank account.
You cannot be accused of Desertion if your husband knows that you are moving!
Yes the 60/40 was in his favour.
You could have a Separation agreement drawn up before you leave if you wish - you simply need to instruct a solicitor to prepare one
If you receive an inheritance after you have separated it is not likely you will have to share it since there are ample other assets to share.
Once you are divorced he no longer has any claim at all
My apologies for the delay
All you need is to have discussed with your husband what the arrangements will be - using Family mediation if necessary
Since none of us are perfect it is easy to create an Unreasonable Behaviour Petition if both parties agree - or for one party to admit to adultery - if an early divorce is sought.
Whene there is a divorce the provisions of the Separation Agreement can be turned into a Consent Order
You are most welcome I hope all goes well
