My daughter's husband left her a year ago to live with

Resolved Question:

My daughter's husband left her a year ago to live with another woman. My daughter lives in the marital home and has joint car of their son, i.e. 2 days with her, 2 days with dad, 5 days with her, 5 days with dad. My son- in-law is now making noises about removing half of the household goods. Can he do that please? My daughter has been using a solicitor but currently does not have the money to carry on. She is trying to find the money to ask the court for their son to be with her and his father to have reasonable visitation.

Hi, thank you for your question. What belongings is he seeking to remove?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
He has most of his personal items already and wants to collect remainder, which we know he is entitled to. But he is making noises about '50% of the household goods' , i.e. Gardening tools, crockery, linen, etc
Expert:  Harris replied 9 months ago.

As they are married it is not as straightforward as him trying to obtain 50% of the belongings. There has to be an agreement between them or it must be settled by the court. If he attempts to remove essential household items she can consider applying to court for an immediate injunction preventing him coming to the property.
