Customer Question

Hello ,

My husband has left me this morning and has taken our very valuable porsche. he says that because he bought it and it is in his name that it is his and he can do what he wants with it .

We paid £15K on a loan in joint names which was paid off when we sold our last home and he has a £15k personal loan on it.

Would this be classed as a marital asset ?

Thank you

Hi
Will the children stay with your?
Can you afford to stay there?
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes the children will stay with me as my ex works in bristol and rents a small apartment there.


 


I could probably afford the mortgage payment if i were to receive child support from him and I currently pay all the bills at home including utilities..ect. I wont have enough money to buy him out though as I have no savings and I dont think I would be allowed a mortgage of over £250,000 on my own.
