Separation from girlfriend

My gf and I have been together for 10 years. We have a 7 and 5 year old together. We bought our house last year.

We spend most of our time arguing. She is very secretive with her own finances, but I share everything. I earn a lot more than her. I’ve had enough of this and feel we should separate. She won’t face this and just walks away when I try and speak to her.

my question is what will end up with the house etc? I’m not too bothered with this, but feel I should get something, as I’ve been earning the majority of the money all these years. I have no problem paying child maintenance. We own the house 50/50. I understand a may not be able to force a sale of the house, but if I were to move out then I couldn’t afford to pay for the house and my life essentials.

any advice,
