My wife threw me out of the family home six months ago. I have 3 children, we've been married for 24 years and I didn't see it coming.

Anyway, after a few weeks of sleeping at friends places, I got a place to live, and we share the children pretty well.

I've brought up a number of times that we need to start discussing the property split. All my equity is in that house, and we also have an investment unit that is interest only and maxed out mortgage.

I haven't been paying the main mortgage, because I just haven't got any spare money after rent, etc. She has stopped paying towards the investment at all.

I've requested details about her super and other personal bank accounts a number of times, but she won't divulge. She has said she wants to keep the house, and I can have the investment unit (which has zero equity).

How do I go about encouraging her?

Do I need to be paying half the mortgage?
