Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
It would be unusual for you to be required to pay any money directly towards your wife with that income, over and above the child maintenance (which is required by law). You would not be expected to pay her maintenance, or her bills, or her mortgage.
I hope this assists?
I understand. Though you remain liable to the mortgage company should your wife not keep up with the payments under the mortgage, you are not going to be forced by the court to pay the mortgage if you are not living there.
My view is that your wife's claim has very little merit.
I hope that clarifies things?
If you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions, should you have them.
