Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are you both?-How long have you been married?-What are the proposed arrangements for the daughter you have together?
-What is the value of the property, and what is the outstanding mortgage?-Who is now living in the property?-What other assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are your respective incomes?
Thanks for confirming and apologies for the delay in responding. Given you have married, the agreement will no longer be fully legally binding as marriage gives rise to a lot of rights and a court can overlook such agreements in light of both your needs at time of divorce and she may be entitled to claim more from the house. She will also have matrimonial home rights to live in the property until at least divorce. Furthermore, given the disparity in income, if she is unable to meet her reasonable needs she can apply for spousal maintenance from you.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
