UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
My house is worth roughly £60k, when my husband left we had £45k outstanding and I changed onto an interest only mortgage. I have been paying off bits when I can and I now owe about £39k.
No just bills. He said at the time he would tale his name off the mortgage and help me pay, but as he had gone on the sick from work and was allegedly claiming mental health issues, my solicitor said that anything he said he could rescind later on claiming he was mentally unfit to say these things. He had a pension, but as he quit work totally I don't think he will still have it.
My daughter has juvenile arthritis, she suffers also from depression and panic attacks as a result of being raped last year at the age of 14, she is extremely wary of being away from me, even for school, but is trying very hard to carry on with her life, we all are. She is also under a sleep apnea clinic as she has been in hospital and stopped breathing a few times. This may be due to the Tamazepam she takes to help her sleep as she has horrific nightmares from the attack last September, needless to say we haven't even got to court yet. We have that to go through yet. She self harms and has a Social Worker to help her in daily life. She wants to move away from the area completely as it was a family friend who attacked her and he knows where we live, and moving because of going to college and university is a new start for her, hopefully. I will go wherever she wants as long as she is ok
