Is anyone able to give any advice on protecting a joint mortgage? 

I have recently found out partner of 20 years has a compulsive gambling problem and has 30K debt on credit cards. 

Partner has signed up to DMP through Step Change and handing finances over to me. 

We’re not married and separate finances which is one good thing, but obviously I am concerned about our joint mortgage, and have two young children to think of. 

Any advice would be much appreciated! 
thank you.
