Thank you for your question here on Just answer. It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with me if I need to ask for any further information from you in order for me to be able to advise you fully. My name is Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008. During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousands of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects. Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in that case. I will be online and off-line all day most weekdays and weekends.

The situation with no children would be that if there was noagreement to the contrary what would happen when the house was sold, it wouldbe split 50-50 when sold eventually regardless of what each put in. I don't agreewith that point of view the courts take but I don't make the law, I justregurgitate it. It doesn't matter what each puts in. good news for you thoughwhich I am pleased about.
Depending on the value of the house you might be able tostay in it until the child is 18 if you wished.
There is no legal aidfor this I am afraid.
You are eligible for child maintenance at CSA rates.
