Anyone experienced a parent getting more than 50% of assets in a divorce because they're your carer?
Hi - nice to meet all of you My Mum is currently going through a divorce from my Dad...which has been very difficult. It has taken him over a year to provide all of his financial information. Last year I was studying a master's part-time but due to my disability- neurological- and needing increase in treatment I have suspended it for now. I am living with my Mum and have been for the last two years following seizures caused by an error with medication. I receive PIP. Her solicitor is currently arguing that she requires more that 50% of their assets because she has to care for me. I wondered if anyone has had this experience?
