Hi, My husband walked out on me and my son when I was 32 weeks pregnant with our second child. He was having an affair. We had a substantial amount of savings at that time. This was October last year, and since then he has been using the savings to buy a new car, rent on both properties as he can't afford both on his salary, and also paying credit card bills. Our savings is now less than 50% of what it was. When we were together we agreed I would take a year off work maternity leave and we could live off his salary. This means our savings would be untouched. Because of his decision to leave the savings have been obliterated. And I have had to go back to work earlier than planned. I have asked him to split the savings as they were in Oct 2013 as I think it's unfair that my hard earned savings have been used for him to set himself up with a new life. I'm not asking for a lump sum but at the end of the day I just would like the money I've saved to still be there for myself and my kids. He refuses and says it's just life and I've to deal with it. Do you think if I fought him in family law court that I would have a chance of winning?
