Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required:-Please confirm if you are in England or Wales?-Are you married to the father?-Does the father have alternative accommodation?
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
HiThank you for your questionMy name is Clare and I have been a family lawyer for more than 30 years.The priority for the family court - whether within divorce proceedings or under Children Act proceedings is the safe and secure housing of the children until they are 18.Accordingly unless you are cohabiting OR the house could be sold and you would still have sufficient capital to purchase an alternative home for the children in the same school area then your ex will have to wait another four years for his share of the equity.I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare
