Divorcing PPR and child maintenance

    you have any experience yourself there?

    your roadmap is bankrupting himself, genius, making his kids homeless


    the courts would tear him a new one for doing that for obvious reason

    @Bass Reeves I think you are referring to court ordered spousal maintenance, not child maintenance. The OP is not paying spousal maintenance, he is paying the mortgage loan on the house (which legally is his sole debt as it is in his name only) and then contributing towards child related costs. Child maintenance is never tax-deductible.

    His soon-to-be-ex-wife has her own income from working and partial social welfare so the chance of any spousal maintenance being awarded in the divorce is very unlikely.

    @Hammerhead1 can I ask you a question?

    You don't have to answer, but you were obviously in a relationship with this woman for a long time, long enough to marry her and have four children.

    Why, once you married, did you not include her on the mortgage? Or sell and buy something together. Was she at least named on the mortgage protection policy?
