Customer Question

My husband has had an extra marital affair and has left the family home. The mortgage, and deeds are in my name only as he was unemployed at the time. We have lived together in our home for 10 years and he has paid half the bills and mortgage. We have two children who will reside with me. What rights does he have to the house and what percentage of the value of the house is he entitled to?

Thank you for your question.
I will do my best to assist you but need some further information first.
How long have you lived together in total and how old are the children.
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage.
What other assets and debts are there and how much do you each earn?
