Benefit-cheat ex has left me in dire straits

February 16, 2015

Hi i was married for 22 years and broke up 3 years ago after my wife had an affair,we argued and to my amazement she phoned the police and un beknown to me because my name wasnt on the rent book the police removed me from the the property with 6 black bags of my clothes.

On further investigation i was told by a member of her family that she had been claiming as a single mother for the last 18 years . i never ever seen any benefits books as her mother would cash them for her and give her the money every monday.

My problem now his i have recieved a letter today from her solicitor seeking a divorce on the grounds of my unreasonable behaviour. i have a 6 year old son and i,m wondering what she expects from me i earn £221.00 net a week i pay

£85 mortgage and insurance
£30 diesel to get to work
£15 electricity
£15 gas
£30 food
£15 internet and tv liciense

I have offered my ex £20 towards my sons expenses which leaves me £11 but she refuses and says she wants £30 to leave my with a £ basically what i,m asking is this is what life is all about or am i missing something or were do i go from here?

    How Harsh.

    Dont worry abou the divorce grounds it doesnt really matter.

    I will suggest that you go online and use the CSA calculator and refuse to pay anymore than that.

    good luck
