Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Where for your ex live?
How far has the divorce reached?
For clarity - who actually owns the property?
Has your ex ever been violent towards you?
I appreciate that but I am looking for a few more details about how that is arranged.
This is relevant to the options open to you as since it is the matrimonial home your wife does have rights of entry
Right - but just for clarity - did your wife ever live there with you?
Are you aware that the site makes an extra charge for a phone call
I am afraid that you have worked it out correctly - since it was the matrimonial home she does have some rights.
However the fact is that she moved out over a year ago and she is not a joint owner of the property so cannot force an entry - not can she force you to leave.
From now on say that she cannot enter the property and can simply collect and deliver the children from and to the front door.
If a move is possible then that would certainly clarify the situation - but it is NOT necessary as if your ex will not accept no for an answer you can apply to the court for an order excluding her.
There is no longer any concept of Custody when it come sto children - but since the children have lived with you for the past year then if your ex tries to change that it is likely that a court would leave them with you
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
Do you need further informtaion at this point?
She does not have the right to break in and she cannot force you to leave - and of course you can refuse to let her in yourself - if you are there.
What you cannot do is top her coming in if the children let her in - nor can your force her to leave once she is inside
The issue of the time she spends with the children is separate from the divorce or the finances - and it would be sensible to set a proper pattern!
Simply set the days and stick to them no matter what she threatens.
If she wants to change it then let her start the court process - not you
