My husband and I are separating and we're starting to discuss how we'll separate our finances - I've been told by a friend who's just gone through a divorce that I can go for a 70 30 split of everything in our marital pot.
I've spent ten years bringing up the kids so haven't worked until recently and I've only got back a couple of days a week. The house is worth around half a million and our three kids want to stay in the house with me. I think he has a big pension, I have hardly anything in my pension. We have some savings, a couple of cars and some valuables such as art etc.
I don't want to fall out with him and want to do this amicably without getting solicitors involved - just not sure where to go from here???
