Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. Are you married or just former cohabitants? We’re there uneven contributions made to the property / household or was everything largely equal? There is no template or blueprint but there are legal principals to apply to individual circumstances of each case so if you can explain things a little more I will help you with this.
Thanks for your question. I don’t quite follow the last part of the text about the mortgage but other than that, from what you say, it would appear to be that this is a case where a 50:50 settlement would be appropriate given your even contributions both financial and bringing up family etc. Child maintenance following separation is a totally separate issue.
In the first instance I would see a solicitor to write to him and say you want the assets divided equally and the sale of the house by the court if an agreement to reach a fair division can’t be reached. I think you have to be a little firmer with your ex and push for what you are entitled to. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for helping you today.
No problem. You can post a question marked “for JGM only” and I will get it.
