I get £600 a month tax credits but I feed myself and the 3 girls so all that goes on food. I earn £150 which runs the car for a month. I get £188 child benefit which covers Sky TV, Phone, Broadband, Children's clothes, shoes, outgoings, toiletries for all of us. If we got out I have to use my savings which is what has been happening for the past 6 months since I decided to divorce. He gets rent off properties to pay mortgage and bills. Any money he earns goes on himself. The whole situation has been totally unfair and nobody seem to be doing anything about it. My solicitor is also Grade A solicitor but I probably need a good one. Isn't there an Interim Maintenance Order I can get from the court or won't they give it me?
Well he is self-employed and last years profits only showed £1,500 each for both of us as we were partners then. Because he is still self-employed as a sole trader I don't really know but I do know he has been doing building work for someone since January earning around £400 a week.
I did think of that but I didn't want to start a war. Worried that he might not pay mortgage and bills.
He gets £650 rent off the house next door and £500 off my mum and dad. The mortgage is £1060 so he has some left over to cover electricity and water rates. I am worried if I took the £500 to cover my legal fees for the next few months that he may not pay the electricity and water and expect me to pay.
My mum is in the annexe and the house next door is rented out and of course we live in another one.
Like I said before he gets £650 a month for the house next door plus £500 off my mum and mortgage is £1060 leaving £90 for electricity and water rates per month.
No not yet I was going ask my solicitor for the form next week
