where to start

Hi

I am in need of some guidance. I have just recently split with my partner of 6 years, we have two children. Whilst we are communicating as our relationship has always been and still is she decides what will and wont happen. Its a time for me to stop this and take control of my life and future.

So, where do i go from here. We have a house/mortgage in both names, we bought a derelect house in need of repair and have only done minimal. i am wanting if finances permit to buy her out of the house, but do not know where to start. this is my starting point in the breakup situation.

i am prepared to let her take anything she wishes when the time comes.

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

thanks
So if you are making a stand - Why are you asking for the Derelict House? Is there a pot of gold underneath or is it on the foreshore of Watsons Bay?

i have put alot of money, time and effort into making it livable.
Fair enough then.

Try negotiating, but learn about negotiating before you start though so you can find the middle ground that is best for you as well as being fair and equitable.

I agree, if you have difficulty getting your point across its important to learn good communication skills. Being able to find the common ground and work things out in a calm and reasonable fashion will keep you out of court and save heaps of money in legal fees.
My advice to you is to put the house on the market and sell asap and split the profits 50/50 because at the end of the day after solicitors fees and all the garbage you go through will eat up any profits. If you wait for the solicitors to look after the property sell then you might get 30/70 maybe 40/60 split.
Of course, if you can agree on how to divide or transfer the property you can set out your arrangement in a financial agreement and the involvment of the solicitors can be minimised.
