Hi Eddie, Sorry but if you have a child then I feel I should probably opt out because there are better experienced experts who will be able to assist you. Please be patient and someone will eventually assist. Apologies again.Tom

HelloIt was nice to speak with you.As discussed - as you are not married - you do not have a direct claim in respect of the business. This also applies to the house as you have not paid the mortgage, deposit or renovated the house.Your avenue for a claim falls under Schedule 1 of the Children Act for provision for your daughter. Such a claim would consider the income, earning capacity, property and other financial resources of you and your ex. This therefore includes her business assets and properties.As discussed - first step for you is to refer to family mediation.Kind RegardsCaroline
