I have recently gone through a custody battle with my Ex for our 2 boys aged 9 and 5. After a year of her absence the court still ruled in her favour of a SHARED residency order with the boys residing with her and I have them for EVERY day of their holidays......being in the Army did me no favours. Can someone give me a brief synopsis of what legally SHARED RESIDENCY means to me. Also we are divored and I have the absolute, so I know now she will be coming after my pension now. Does it make any difference to what I am legally bound to produce to her solicitor ect with regards to pension, lump sum ect? Our house was repossessed due to her stealing the mortgage money out of the joint account which she has admitted to in writing during the custody battle which has left us Â£70,000 in debt. I have agreed a payment plan with the Abbey National who to be honest have been excellent in the way they are dealing with it. Does this have any bearing to her asking for money off me? Also the dreaded CSA.....I have roughly worked out that due to the amount of days the boys will be with me during the year I will have to pay her approx Â£90 per week. Does our debt have any bearing on this ie do they take any of my outgoings into the equation? She is in the process of going bankrupt!! Also I have to do all the travelling involved picking them up and dropping them off. It is an 8 hour round trip. Desperate for someone just to let me know legally what the truth is please. Ty in advance.
