Thank you. My advice is to stay put. It doesn’t make any difference to the finances but you will lose control.
If you leave, you are no longer responsible for the rent and unless you have started or she has started divorce or legal separation proceedings, the court will not normally get involved in marital finances.
While she may want you to leave, she may change her mind if she is left with the rental payments and the bills.
You still have a liability for child maintenance at the CMS rates which are here
Do read the whole document but the basic rates start at the top of page 18.
Child maintenance is reduced by 1/7th for each 52 nights that the non-resident parent has the children.
