He has been providing child support. Mutually agreed at CSA rate. I suppose the root of my question relates to whether I can seek assistance with the level of debt I left the marriage with. I left the family home as I would not have been able to manage it financially on my own and I signed the house over to him. Possibly not the best thing to do but i wasn't thinking clearly at the time. I am currently working and providing a home for myself and my son but the debt i have which was incurred during the marriage is becoming unmanageable. Could I apply for him to take on some or all of the debt or is it too late?
Hi, the loan was taken out in my name to consolidate loans/credit cards three years before the marriage broke down. The only marital assets would be the house, two cars, pension and any savings he has (I have none at this time). Sorry it is a little vague. He kept much of his financial information to himself so I am not entirely sure what he has.
I am going to opt out of this for another expert to consider.Please do not reply or it comes back into my inbox. Another expert will pick itup at some stage. It is now open to all experts.
