Hi all, I am not yet divorced but have been separated for seven months. Three children under the age of seven are involved. The house is sold and the money is in trust, around $123k. My superannuation is $95k and hers is $97k. I currently have the children 2 nights per fortnight. My ex is earning around $50k and I was earning $70k but, lately, work has been impossible for me due to a breakdown. I am due to receive an inheritance of $100k to $180k in the near future after my father passed 3 months ago. I am currently broke, and have no money for a lawyer, the toll this has taken has left me broken in every way basically. Can I request to receive some of the house money to survive for now and to engage a lawyer.? It seems we will need to go to family court for me to have greater access to the children after failed mediation. Do the consent orders I will propose for property need to be of my wealth at the time of separation or when the orders are signed and sent away? Do I have to declare the inheritance which I am eligible for but have not received from the trustee? How does the correction of percentage get evaluated for property distribution if I am seeking 50-50 time with the children? Is it worked out on the current access or with a view to what I am seeking? If I do the 70-30 on the consent forms as I have read is the normal thing and cop a loss how long does it take to be approved? Simply put, I am broke, I need money now and I can't wait or else I will be living on the street. I never saw this coming after 15 years together and I am still heartbroken but I need to live, I need help, please. If anyone has any suggestions or any material for me to research it would mean the world to me. Many thanks.
