Hi, thank you for your question. Whose name is ***** ***** in?
Thanks for confirming. Firstly as it is the matrimonial home she is entitled to return to occupy it until divorce, secondly as it is in joint names between them she has a legal interest in the property and she can return there unless there is a court order in place excluding her from the property - such as an occupation order. Such an order is usually used if there is a risk of harm from the occupying party if the other were to return - this can be applied for under form FL401 to his local family court.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
