Hi, thank you for your question.
Given the short marriage, it would be unlikely that you would have a good case to seek a claim against the majority of his assets, unless they are matrimonial assets. As the property you use as the matrimonial home is in his sole name, and our short marriage, it is likely that this would be the only matrimonial asset and you would have a right to continue occupying the property at least until divorce. You can register your matrimonial home rights on the title of the home using form HR1 with the land registry and your husband will be notified of this. If you are unable to meet your reasonable needs from your income you would be able to seek spousal maintenance from him to meet at least the shortfall.
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
