Please can you advise me. My daughter is separating from her husband and the situation has become so difficult that she needs to leave the family home as the behaviour of her husband has become too difficult. He refuses to move out of the family home and at this moment will not consider selling. We have found her a small flat that we could rent in the area enabling them to share childcare etc. Would she be giving up any of her legal rights to her share of her home or any other effects there may be on eventually coming to some final end of the marriage. Any advice much appreciated.
Please be aware that it is impossible for her to continue living in the property with him and we have had one occassion where he has pushed her out of the house with her little girl and locked the door at 23.00.
You probably need to know that she did have a problem with alcohol linked to the relationship and undertook an inpatient rehab programme and has been clean since last october despite all the domestic issues. She continues to attend the centre on a weekly basis for ongoing support.
