Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are they both?
-Is the child to remain with your daughter?-What is the value of the property, and what is the outstanding mortgage?-What other assets and pensions do they both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are their respective incomes?
Thank you. Do they have any other assets, savings, properties in England or anywhere else in the world?
Thanks for confirming. I needed to ensure that there were no other assets as this would have changed the information I provide you.
Given that your daughter is the main carer of the child her needs, and the child's needs are the courts priority consideration. She would be entitled to seek an order to remain in the property until the child reaches a certain age (thereby meeting his housing needs), as well as seek child maintenance from the father (this would be between £61 to £136 per week - the more the child stays with the father on average each week, the less liability the father has). Furthermore, if she is unable to meet her reasonable needs and fund the mortgage and outgoings solely she can seek spousal maintenance from the father to cover any shortfall between her income and reasonable needs.
