My wife had an affair over 3 years ago and decided to split

This answer was rated:

My wife had an affair over 3 years ago and decided to split so we sold the family home and split the money.
We have one 18 year old child that we share custody of and she is still a student,we both finance our daughter informally.
We are still married.
Is she able to get any more money off me if she goes for a divorce or goes to court,she has not made any signs of this but it's on my mind .thankyou

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

What assets do you each have now and how much do you each earn?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we both earn about 20000 per year each and used 270000 each when we sold the family home to purchase our own properties.

What about pension provision?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
None of us have pensions

Excellent (well for this purpose)

Given all that you have said then there is little chance that your ex will be able to make any further claims off you as and when there is a divorce.

The matrimonial assets were shared equally between you both, you are evenly matched financially and able to make adequate provision for yourselves

Please ask if you need further details
