I’m writing this through tears tonight, tears of gratitude. Mum and Dad have offered to help financially. They say they’d rather help me now when I need help rather than leave money to me as inheritance. Where the children and I we were going to live was a huge worry for me – I want to stay in the house but I can’t without James leaving in some money and being tied into the mortgage. I know James wanted his share out of the property, and he wants to buy somewhere himself, and I think this is why the financial side has been so difficult.
Now I have more options. I’m going to make another appointment with the mortgage broker and Mum and Dad are going to come with me. If Mum and Dad can be guarantors for the mortgage I’m hoping to get James released from it. This will mean he can get a mortgage himself on a property to buy and I think that will make a big difference to him. Mum and Dad are also going to lend me some money to be able to make James an offer to buy out his share. I’m so relieved to have these options; if it all works out I will have the security of my home for me and the children, and James will have some money to buy somewhere for himself and for the children to stay when they’re with him.
