It's a good question -I was just wondering myself why his posts were irritating me so much (anger is too strong a word for a forum poster).
I think its his assumption that what he wants is what he gets...... eg HE decides how much to contribute , HE chose to leave, HE told his wife he'd continue to support the family at the same level and has now changed his mind..... That's the impression I'm getting -and it seems a shoddy way to treat a family of (presumably) at least twenty years. Not once has he said he's asked his wife (or children) for their input. As I said it might be he's not trying to give too much away emotionally but it all comes from one direction, No mention of helping his wife with retraining costs, no mention of what will happen to their home .

Well I’ve had more discussions with my wife about our situations. I asked her if she had an idea of how arrange things, she didn't so I proposed to cover all the household bills plus 20% of my income, I agreed to continue paying driving lessons for the children to £200/month and to continue giving them £50 a month pocket money. I also agreed to continue to provide her with a car that I get (I pay a monthly lease fee through work) she only has to pay fuel all insurance etc included. She’s planning to move back south near her parents in the summer when son(17) finishes school year she’s had time to consider the proposal and does not agree. I suggested she looked into finding a job and what support she can get from tax credit etc. However her response was that she is not going to look for a job or into what benefits she can claim until she moves in the summer. She wants to just carry on as normal for next 3 months. This makes it not possible for me to rent somewhere.
So I guess it’s time to get legal advice. I’ve had a solicitor recommended but they are 200/hour is that normal? Any advice on how to find a solicitor?
