Hi many thanks for getting back to me. Since I being in touch I think my wife has contacted a solicitor and has now changed her tune saying that we shall both just have to live separate lives in the house together until our son reaches 16 years of age. I am not able/willing to do that living in that kind of atmosphere. My wife has advised that she can't/won't buy me out so I have offered to buy her out but she says she is not leaving the family home thus bringing us to a stalemate. What are my options now? I am asking for no more than I am entitled to yet my wife is claiming she can live a separate life under the same roof yet I do not think this is an option nor will it work.
But what grounds would I apply for a divorce for? Do we not have to be living apart for a length of time? Neither party has been unfaithful we have just reached the end. My wife is not willing to buy me out nor allow me to buy her out and has now advised me that we will just have to live together but not speak which I am not willing to do and is no good for the children or myself. I feel as though we are at a stalemate and I am being made to suffer. I only want what I am due and no more to set up a home on my own or buy her out and she can set up a new family home.
Do we have to then officially apply for a separation notice with the courts and then after 2 years can file for divorce and sort out all the financial dealings. I think my wife has also been given this advice and has decide to dig her heels in and now going to make my life hell at home and try to force me to leave the family home.
Final question here. So what advice would you give me in my current situation? Knowing the history and my wife not willing to budge.
