Customer Question

My wife has left me and wants a divorce. It's not what I want and is all her doing! Where does this leave me in terms of mortgage as it's in joint names. We also have a son who is staying with me.

How long have you been married and how old is your son?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Married on 23/5/08. Have a son who is 7 and a half. I will also have to give up my job as a retained firefighter as I can't leave him in the house if called out.

What does your wife work at? When was the house bought? What other marital assets are there? Why did she leave and not take your son? Is there another party involved?
