Hi thank you for your message, you moving out does not affect any financial settlement you might have. In that regard the financial division starting position is a 50/50 split of the marital assets that is all assets acquired during the marriage plus the family home.
Yes, that is the starting position beyond that of course you can negotiate and sometimes the court might be minded to say that the mother can stay in the family home and be the primary carer until the kids are say 18 and then the father will get an increased amount in the family home. It depends on the amount of assets available as to whether or not that is practical.
