Thank you for your question
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Who has the day to day care of the children at the moment.
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
What other assets and debts are there and what income do you each have?

I am the one who does cooking for my children. My wife is not working at the moment. Both of my daughters knows that their mum has a bad tempered and constantly telling them off. Last month she stayed away from home for 3 nights in a whole week, which she has never done before. To answer your question above i am the one who looks after my children most, and my kids knows that. I worked in the evenings and their mum look after them, but sometimes she just leave them at home and goes to kickboxing, gym and have drinks with her friends. We have a joint mortgage of around 100k. I worked at a chinese take away and enough to pay for the mortgage.
