Hi, thanks for your question. I am a qualified family law solicitor.
Just a bit more information required:
1. Are you married to your partner?
2. Whose name is ***** ***** and property?
3. Whose name is ***** ***** wagons?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1. We not married been together for 15 years
2. Mortgage in both names
3. Burger wagons registed in my name but he made me put in writing it belong to both of us as the first one was brought with the money from a flat we sold

Thanks. As the properties are in both of your names, legally you both hold them jointly.
However, if you were to separate and he asks you and the children to move out then you can make an application to court under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989 in order to have an order allowing you and the children to stay in the property until a relevant date (eg. your youngest child finishes education), thereafter for the property to be sold and each party to obtain their relevant shares from the equity.

My problem is he put he's price already he wants £45.000 from me and he knows selling every thing I want have that kind of money
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can he by law ask me for this kind of money ?
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Thanks. If you cannot afford that, then you simply cannot agree to it. Your children's needs will come first and the accommodation will be looked at in that way.
Usually, in these circumstances it is always best to sit down and talk things through to reach an amicable agreement, which is best done using an independent mediator. You can find local mediators here: www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk
