My Brother has just separated from his partner (about 2 weeks ago - he was told to leave). They have 2 children (8 and 12) and have been renting her father's house. They have a joint bank account in which my brothers redundancy of approx £10k was put into. He used some of the money to redecorate the children's bedrooms but last night he found that he had much less money remaining as she has taken out a couple thousand pounds since the separation. Can he get legal aid for a Solicitor and can he go into the house (he still has keys) and take out items which he paid for (he initially left with his clothes and his car and is temporarily living with our Mum).
