the question is
1.What are my rights to stay in the house with the children?
2. Should I take out a restraining order to stop my ex partners father from entering the house and locking me out again?
3. Do I have any financial interest if the house is sold ?
Was the house bought as a family home for the couple and the children? Can your daughter and afford to live in it on her own? Has there been any allegation of violence? You refer to your financial interest and you taking out a restraining order and you staying in the house, but I thought this was your daughter. So, is it you or your daughter that I am advising? The reason I mention that is that you only have rights as a guest. Your daughter’s situation is different. You may or may not have rights for child contact as a grandparent but you have not said whether that is an issue or not. I assume not because your daughter is able to let you see your grandchildren whenever you like
1. The house was bought as a family home for the couple and the children (nobody else lives in the property now but my daughter and the children). My daughter could afford the mortgage on her own but it is not in her name.
2. The partner who has left is claiming my daughter has hit him on occasions
3. I am asking these questions on behalf of my daughter and if she has any financial interest - not me.
4. Grand parent contact is not an issue for me as we look after them whilst she goes to work.
He alleges that she hit him, but no complaints were made to anybody, either then or now.
The police were involved yesterday when his father (who claims he owns the house) locked my daughter out of the house. She called the police and they warned him my daughter has rights to live in the house as I stated earlier. There is a reference number for this incident. My daughter is now back in the house and he left to go home after being warned by the police.
