Hello, no, there is no 50/50 hard and rest rule. Police know little about family law and do not go on what they say.You do however need to settle your separation, seek a property order to have you paid out your share.Married 35 years, you would be entitled to around 60%. He needs to pay you put that figure or negotiate something close to.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
