Hi there - They are in the process of selling their current home as they wish to downsize but with their relationship being precarious \jane is very worried as to what would happen if they split up. He has said he will not put her name on the deeds of any new property they purchase. They have a large mortgage and he supports all three children. It has been a stumbling block with our grandkids not wishing to be adopted and wishing to keep their own name. Their father died when they were 5 and 15months old and there are no other childrren in that family. they are now 14 and 11. His daughters mum died 3 years ago - she is now 16 and was left a seven figure sum by her mother which is in trust until she is 25 or so.
She wishes to stay married and loves her husband but things are becoming unbearable and is concerned he could simply turn her out of their home. If they did split up does she have any claim on the property they are living in with regard to divorce and would he have to support her in the future in any way.
