The boys are 12 and 10. My daughter's husband is a self-employed windowcleaner who earns about 3000pounds a month but hasn't given her any money this last month, so I have been giving her money to live on. He says that he refuses to give her anything to help her!
Liz only went to the solicitor today, and the solicitor is preparing letter for Liz's husband to tell him she is divorcing him. However, when she saw her husband after he returned from work, he went crazy and told her and the boys to get out. She left because she has been verbally and occasionally physically abused in the past. My daughter is spending the night at a B & B tonight. I'm hoping that the law will be able to get my daughter back into her home, but she will then have the full cost of running the home.
House worth £170,000
Monthly payments £700
If Interest only £320
Liz did apply to building society to change payments to interest only, but she believes that her husband has torn the papers up. Anyway he said he would refuse to sign them.
NO CREDIT CARDS
At the moment she receives:
Family Allowance £65 per month
Disability Living Allowance £65 per month
Tax Credit £100 per week
Not for a while, as far as I am aware.
It is mainly verbal abuse to her and her sons. Language that I would not expect to hear anywhere, let alone to children! Words like c..t, w....r!
I should have said also that he is 6foot 6 tall and towers over the boys and my daughter shouting at them. Very intimidating!
