Form sent.
Expert:  Clare replied 8 days ago.

Not received I am afraid

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I lived in my own home which was bought with my son jointly. I moved to my husband house for 1 year then we moved in to a house which he paid and in he name only for 1 year then we got married. We have married for 4 years now. He has mental health problem and now may want to divorce. He is 63 and I am 60 years old. I wonder during divorce I have Home Right to stay in the house. Can I ask him to move out? Can I add my name on the property? My contribution is paying house hold bills and look after him.
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I attach the HR1 form again . pls complete the rest of the form for me.
Expert:  Clare replied 8 days ago.

How many properties do you have?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I only have one property which was joined name with my son then later after changed to be my own name we married in order to be able to remortgage.
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Why do you only ask questions but not answer my questions?
Expert:  Clare replied 7 days ago.

I am trying to understand why your form refers to two different properties - see question 9

am making sure i understand your position so that I can give the the correct answer

Are you saying that you and your husband each own a property?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
My husband own 3 properties and I own one property.
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Sorry it should be: "I only have one property which was joined name with my son then later after my husband and I got married changed to be my own name in order to be able to remortgage".
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I need the HR1 form to be sent out urgently. Please completed the form for me.
Expert:  Clare replied 7 days ago.

Right

At Question 4 there is no fee to pay so do not tick a box at all

At Question 7 - put in the address that you wish to use for correspondance

At Question 9 the answer is no so remove the other details and ticks

Then sign the form and send it off

You cannot force your husband to move out unless he is violent towards you I am afraid
