Customer Question

Hello Clare,

Im enquiring on my partners behalf.We are near the end of his divorce and its getting very messy!

The divorce was put through as adultery against my partner even though they both had new partners.

His ex wife is now pregnant with her new partners child and has now stated they have broken up so my partner has to pay spousal maintenance. They haven't split!

We have been nothing but truthful about our relationship and cohabitation but seem to be the ones loosing out here!
Any advice you have is really appreciated

Many Thanks
