At the moment we are still living in the same house although we both realise that that will change at some point.
I currently earn about £50K per year gross but we have quite a few debts that we have built up over the years so my money is very diluted each month whilst these debts are being paid off.
My ex partner was working about 3 or 4 nights a week as a care worker earning about £70 per night although the woman she was looking after has recently been taken into hospital so she may not have a job anymore.
In January I have some EMI shares in my company that mature and at that point I could effectively afford to buy her out of the house and debts if she agrees.
These shares could effectively be worth somewhere in the region of £250K so it is really important that I protect myself before then.
Our children we have are 3 and 5 (6 in may) I also have another child from a previous relationship who will be 16 in May.
I have faced up to the fact that she does not want to be with me and that our relationship is over.
I now need to concentrate on protecting myself and my belongings as best I can.
I would be happy to throw all the debts into one pot and offload this against the value of the house and pay my ex partner 50% of the difference however I'm scared that she is seeking legal advise to try and get a lot more.
Please help :-)
