The husband and I are doing a 6 month separation. He moved out a few weeks ago. We won't be doing an asset split at this stage so we currently have our incomes going into the joint account to pay the mortgages and all that goes with them.
I currently receive FTB and Child Support entitlements have been provided. ex says that we should each take an equal "allowance" from the joint account to cover day to day costs. But really, even with child support coming from him, my expenses would be much higher than his but I don't know what sort of figure to come up with. Kids are 1 and 3.
has anyone gone through this and came up with numbers? While it would be great for my income to go straight to my account I'd hate our joint account to deplete and the bills/mortgages go unpaid.
