Just issued divorce proceedings
September 14, 2022 11:12PM
I earn 85k and struggling with the idea I could end up giving my ex hubby maintance in the divorce.
I have inheritance I used to buy a second home and have recently sold and put in joint names on land registry and a cash purchase.
We also purchased right to buy property with my discount of £80600. It is valued at 270k but not within the 5 year owning and hence would have to pay 60% of 270k plus mortgage of 125k.
I currently earn a good wage but this is on a contract basis so not always reliable income.
My husband has been self employed since April so his earnings are less as to the nature of building up his business.
I find the law on fairness and need very subjective as my contribution has allowed us to get mortgage etc.
Only a short marriage 5 years and I have no pension and my husband has.
I offered him a fair outcome for divorce where he stays in home and we split mortgage and sell in 3 yes and an equal split. He still wants half my inheritance. I am aware my earnings are high but this will not continue long term as I am 52 with health issues so could he still get my inheritance and maintenance.

If there are no dependent children and your husband is under no disability it is unlikely that this is a case where it would be appropriate for you to pay him maintenance.
