Hello and thank you for your question.

There is no legal reason why your father cannot go guarantor to help you secure your loan.

Going guarantor is a serious commitment at any time, but whilst your financial situation may be uncertain given that you will likely need to reach a financial settlement with your wife at some point in the future, so for that reason, before proceeding, it may be prudent for you to review your situation with a family lawyer so you can get a sense of the sort of settlement that is likely to be achievable with your wife, a then you will have a better idea of whether or not you will be in a position to repay such a loan.

I trust the above assists.


Merry Christmas
