My husband has now taken up with another woman but his behaviour is very erratic and he is clearly in a very confused state. She is an accountant and is seeking her own divorce but influencing him heavily as he has never been brilliant with money and is now spending his business income like there's no tomorrow.
He has already said that, as he is transferring his business to become a limited company to avoid affecting the personal assets as a sole trader, that I should consider putting the mortgage in my name.
The mortgage company has said that they would consider re-evaluating my application and that as long as I can afford the repayments there wouldn't be an issue with just transferring the mortgage to me.
The land registry is as joint "proprietors" and at the moment I am finding out if we are joint tenants or tenants in common on the deeds( as I have forgotten. Part of his crisis is that he has written out his own will which is not notarised or witnessed )
I'm really wanting to protect myself in the event of him separating or deserting. I am just keen to know my rights and whether I can stop him from doing anything without my knowledge. But in the event of him spending his money/assets - what can I do to protect myself, our child, my pension and the house?
