It is very unlikely he would be expected to pay you spousal maintenance, he will be expected to keep paying the mortgage until the divorce settlement is reached. At that point it is likely the house will need to be sold and the proceeds split essentially 50/50. Now your children have long since become adults you would be expected to work enough to support yourself without extra income from your then ex, though given your age, the court will be realistic that you are only a few years from retirement age. I trust this assists
I understand, sadly in a relationship breakdown one party is often affected more than the other for instance, in this case I gather he is living in another woman's house, therefore if it is a multi-million pound house it is not because of his assets or income but because of her wealth. I trust this assists
Afraid not, especially if he has no pensions or savings and is as you say useless with money he is likely living off his partner and of course their income cannot be factored into your divorce settlement. Take care
