I am sorry to hear about what has happened.
The law will apply the following 4 steps.
Step 1: Determine what the assets are and their value
This will include all assets and their value as at the day that you are dividing them. It does not matter whose name the assets are in, they will form part of the matrimonial pool. Superannuation entitlements are also included.
Step 2: Determine what contributions you and your Husband made towards the assets.
This includes a consideration of both financial and non-financial contributions. Consideration is given to what assets each of you brought into the marriage as well. The weight given to your initial contribution will be dependent upon the length of your relationship. The longer the relationship the less weight given to the initial contribution.
Step 3: What are each of your future needs.
Consideration is given to your respective ages, your comparitive income earning capacity as well as other factors.
IF these things don't balance equally for each spouse, then an adjustment is made in the percentages.
Step 4: Make an order that is just and equitable between both spouses
Contributions are important but the law also looks at what has been contributed financially and non financially in a long marriage.
I cannot tell you about a fair split because there is not enough information and I would need to also see what the current assets and liabilities are the parties incomes and also the superannuation and health of each.
The fact he has not worked and you supported him will go against you if he has need and he may also apply for spousal maintenance.
You cannot sort this out simply you will have to have a solicitor and get full and frank disclosure and a history of the relationship.
Financial contributions are not the only variables that are applied.
I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive. If there is nothing further, Happy New Year and
