The wife and I have lived together for about 16 years and have a child of 14 years of age. The house is worth approx £200,000. Also, the wife has land worth approx £60,000 in her sole name in another non EU country. My son wishes to stay with me in the house but the wife believes that she is entitled to half the house, will move out, and keep her far off land to herself.
My wife intends to take this matter to a family court, probably with legal aid provided..Presumably the wife and I each provide a statement and the judge decides on placement of the child and division of property etc.
We have a small 3 bedroom house and a 2 bedroom may be £50,000 less.
Are you now in a position to give me your expert opinion on this matter?
thankyou in anticipation
I live in England and the mortgage is fully paid up, under the life assurance policy, as my brother, the co owner, died, with 4 years of the mortgage to run.
you are asking too many questions now. Can you please give me a simplified answer to my initial enquiry
Thank you for your help in .this matter and the useful info you gave me. To improve things may i suggest that rather than asking one question at a time put them all together.
