Hi
Sadly an eight year relationship means that it is certainly likely that a court will award her at least half of the house - and you will have to share the contents with her as well I am afraid.
Of more concern is the fact that the court may delay any sale of the house until her daughter is 18.
This is far from certain - but there is a risk.
There is no need for a polygraph test at all - it will not effect the divorce in any way

As there will b no equity in the house there would b nothing of the house to split as marital debts would use all the equity of the house and that three dogs we have and the fact that I have recently started a tattoo business from the house . Would that go in my favor as I pay 98% of the house hold bill and can afford to keep it

Hi
It is not that straightforward I am afraid - it is possible that she will be allowed to stay in the house (without you) until the child is 18.
You can try and negotiate with her using Family Mediation (www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk)
