An excellent point made and I concur. Her income increases from £19k to £29k from 2.5 to 4 days. This changes tax and ni liability from £2600 to £5800 a year, a benefit to the treasury of £3200 but instead she is eligible for £9k welfare a year. There lies the problem in today's society that people are better off on benefits than working, in this case the treasury is paying out net £6k

I will support and make sure they are in great homes with my wife were they will be local and happy. If she gets an extra days work she can manage to get a £280k home nearby. Instead she is racking up £60k of fees and refuses to work. Is that fair? Is that right? The children aged 6 and 4 will have continuity of home and a great home nearby which I see as a fair solution and my wife was hap

I've taken away the emotion (after a year) and looking at this financially and for the benefit of our children. We always agreed she would increase her days once our youngest started school.

Thanks Jill of all trades. It is near impossible to buy one home where we live let alone two. When a property comes to market they end up with bidding wars and closed bids, it could take six to 12 months to move. Also, the finances do not work as I need 25% deposit as I'm self employed. After looking at all solutions retaining the FMH makes financial sense in the short to medium term and

Hi, after some advice please as I am best part of a year into this process with little in the way of resolution. - We married late 2009 - FMH bought with £50k deposit from my former home - We attended marriage counselling in June 2016 which she pulled out of after the second session - My wife filed for divorce in August 2016 - We attended mediation early 2017 which she pulled out of
