Hi, I've been with my de facto ex-partner for 19 years. We have a 16-year-old and an 11-year-old. We have a property together and also a business in which we are both listed as directors. We don't live in our owned property but rather rent a property which is the family home. I do the admin in the business and my ex partner does the work that the business specialises in. He came home a month ago and told he had a new partner and wanted things to end, and as you can imagine, I've been struggling to accept these huge changes. He is still living with us in our family home and has been sending me emails and telling me verbally that I need to sign over my share of the business, often with a time frame enforced. He's told me I won't be entitled to any support that I need to find a job and pay the rent on the family home as he is moving out and taking our daughter's dog with him and that he will have both our children from Thursday to Monday. I can't afford to continue the rent here. Both our kids are in private school. I've gone to see one solicitor who I didn't feel right about, and I've called Relationships Australia who've explained that we need to do mediation. I guess I'm just scared of the future and what's to come and also how on earth I'll be able to pay bills, etc., once he's completely stopped any payments. Centerlink have told me I'll get approx $300 per fortnight.
