Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
i shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How long have you lived together and are there any children involved?
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
My apologies - you had said that about the mortgage
Is there somewhere else he could move to?
Have there been any threats of violence?
How much will a cheaper two bedroom property cost to buy?
What income do you each have?
The bad news is that you cannot force your husband to leave the house immediately unless there is an incidence of violence.
In the longer term as part of the financial side of divorce the property will need to be sold - with a starting point of the equity being shared 50/50.
However you will be able to claim a larger share of the equity in order to house your daughter until she is 18 - and if you forgo your claim for a pension share there is no
reason why you should not have the larger share permanently.
You should offer to discuss all this with him using Family mediation
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
I wish I could have given better news
