Hi, can you please advise me on a family law issue regarding separation and divorce ?
Basically, my wife has walked out of the house with children who are 18 and 20. She has been coming into the house intermittently to collect her belongings when im not there. 3 weeks later she came in with her brother, who eventually caused arguments and assaulted me in front of my son, ordered me to leave the house.
The property is in joint names and I am concerned that they may change the locks to the doors as my wife has access to the house. And I may not be able to get in.
She is now willing to commence divorce proceedings.
I did report the incident with re her brother to the police and have a crime reference number.
What is my legal position and my rights please.?
We have been married for 24 years. The house is worth about £650,000. There is £250k of mortgage. We also have a holiday home in Cyprus which is in negative equity. My income is about £50k and hers is £20k
we have 2 grown up children .We have about £7k in credit card debt. We have no other assets apart from our own cars which are not worth much.
No. But this is implied when the legal process starts.
My children are 19 and 21 and she is refusing them to talk to me or have any contact with me. Can she do this and do I have any recourse?
Secondly, my wife is heavily influenced by her brother in making decisions for her regarding our marriage. I have reported him to the police for causing friction and aggravation. Can I prevent him from entering my property?
