So my ex of nearly 5 yrs has started divorce proceedings. This I’m happy about as I started the process 4 yrs ago and my ex would not comply and wasted lots of my money causing issues.
My ex has contacted me to say when papers arrived please can I just sign and not cause any issues. I was baffled by this request and ex has said that they don’t want me to try lay claim to the pension they have.
I’m really confused by this statement, I am also concerned as we have a child together who has additional needs and will not be financially self sufficient. I fear when our child hits 18 and maintenance stops ex will no longer provide or help support our child. This worries me especially if something was to happen to me.
History around spilt ex threw us out of marital home and left me with nothing apart from a few clothes and small bits of furniture, and homeless. Within 4 weeks ex was with new partner, within 6 months surrendered our marital home to move in with new partner.
Should I just sign or should I be asking for financial security for our child.
Thanks for help and advice
