Customer Question

Hi, my wife and I have agreed to seperate and after putting our house on the market my stepfather has agreed to help out with money to buy my wife out of her share of the house. My concern is what happens legally with this situation. I have concerns about getting £100,000 from family and then in a future divorce having to pay again. We also have 2 small children which will be staying with my wife so there is an agreement on maintenance also. Essentially we are playing nice but we both want to be safe legally in this situation. Thanks
