I am 44 and my soon to be ex husband is 61. There are no children involved at all.
I would like to stay in the property because it is my home and I work in Ipswich. My soon to be ex husband also wishes to stay because it is his home as well and he has to live in Ipswich because of the terms of his employment. My soon to be ex husband has told me I have to move out because it is my decision to end the marriage.
Ipswich Borough Council have stated that because we have a joint tenancy agreement we cannot kick the other out and the only way to resolve the issue is for a judge to award the property to one of us. Then the Council will rehouse the other one.
As we are doing the divorce ourselves and only have a couple of weeks to the decree absolute I need to know how to get the judge to award the property to one of us. I did phone Southend Court as was informed there should be an application form to complete but they couldn't tell what it is called or where to get it from. I have tried for days to get in contact with the citizens advice but cannot get through to them. Hence I have come to you.
