Hi Clare we have been living together 14 years and married for 11 years we have a 10,9 and 8 year old and I have a 16 year old that he has raised as his own. The mortgage has about 300.000 left on it. 1 business turned over £302.148 last year another turned over 102.639 another has only just opened. We both only take a wage of £900 a month then dividend's when needed. Phil usually takes the most as he covers all bills. The other year he took 65.000. The children's care is half as he wont let me have them. One has them 5 days one week then change over the next week.

Are you aware that the site charges extra for a phone call?

Does the shared care arrangement work for the children?

If the businesses were sold how much would they make?

Please confirm the value of the matrimonial home?
