I have been a single mum on a low income for nearly 14 years. My has petitioned for a divorce which I cannot afford to defend. My dad (a pensioner himself) helped as far as possible with a solicitor but nothing progressed. I want a financial settlement my X wants a clean break from paying maintenance until my children reach 18. ( 2years, ). He has emailed me with a paltry offering of some funds which will decline to zero when the youngest turns 18 (4 years). My biggest concern is losing the house that I currently rent and being homeless . I have anxiety so can only work in low paid environment such as gardening or working with young adults for Mencap which I do part voluntary. I receive the maximum amount of housing ben which pays half my rent the other half is met by the maintenance my X will be taking away. any advice please.
