UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hi, I am still waiting for an answer.
Hi Clair sorry about the delay.
We have no assets to speak of. I earn £400 p/w before tax of which I give my wife £65 p/w she earns in the region of £120 p/w as she only works part time.
My concern is that once we get divorced or Judicial Separation can she come back in the future and demand more? I need to start saving for a mortgage and may have a good business deal early next year if I continue to work hard at what I am doing.
It is worrying that she will only work part time, (no other reason for not working full time) and could potentially try and get more from me.
I'm 47 she is 43 she could probably earn around £240 p/w if she wanted to work full time.
