Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-Are you in England or Wales?
-Are/were you married to her?
-Whose name is ***** ***** in?
-Are there any court orders in place, if so what?
-How much is the property worth and outstanding mortgage?
Thanks for confirming. You have a legal interest in the property and given that she has now occupied it with a new partner who she intends to marry you should consider pursuing a buy out of your share. Legally you would be entitled to a share of the equity in accordance with how you hold the title, so if it is a joint tenancy you would be entitled to 50% of the equity. If she does not agree to buy you out you should consider applying to court to force a sale of the property which can be done using form N1 and a £355 court fee.
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.,
