Hello, looking for some advice please! My husband left me and moved out of our marital home. All the mortgage and bills are in his name. I applied for universal credit and haven’t received anything towards the housing. I have always paid towards the mortgage and so have said with the UC i receive i can cover all the household bills and 1/3 of the mortgage. He has now come back to me and said that he cannot afford the 2/3 of the mortgage plus the child maintenance. As after his outgoings at his new place plus mortgage and maintenance he will have less than £100. Where do I stand on the mortgage as it’s on his name but I am in the house with the kids.
