Subject: Can my wife obtain a Mesher order if she can't afford the mortgage Posted: Monday, July 27, 2015 - 18:33:23
My wife cheated on me and I am in the process of filing for divorce. We have two children aged 6 and 4 we have around 100k equity in our £300k property. My wife doesn't have a job. I will obviously pay the required maintenance for my children. My question is will the court be likely the to award her a Mesher order if she doesn't have enough income to pay for the mortgage and bills? Will the social just increase her benefit so that she can pay everything or will they suggest she uses her share of the property to rent a smaller property?
