Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied
Could you kindly advise why you would want to place your house in trust please?
I believe my husband who has alcohol problems may seek a divorce & I wondered if I put the house in trust for the children who are adults would he then be unable to force me to sell it for a settlement. I have been married to him for 5 yrs & he moved into my home .
Thanks. I had not anticipated this would be a family law orientated question which is not my speciality. With your permission I will ask a colleague who does specialise in family law to assist with this.
If you could kindly avoid replying back to me until you hear from one of my colleagues that would be helpful as replying to the thread before they are involved can lock the thread back to me meaning they cannot reply. You should receive and email when my colleague replies. Best wishes.
I believe my husband will seek a divorce , he will not reconcillate & says he wants to leave. He has alcohol problems & is currently in a depressed & unpredictable state . I wondered if I put the house in trust for the children who are young adults none living with us.(None together but we have 2 each from previous marraiges) would he then be unable to force me to sell it for a settlement. I have been married for 5 yrs & he moved into my home which is in my name only. I have paid all utillity bills & living costs including the mortgage (small ammount is owed). I was thinking if I did this I would make no claim on his pension & the children would each recieve a share on my death.
The answer is detailed but dosn't help me as It is not certain my husband seeks a divorce he hasn't mentioned that just he wants to leave & has looked at renting, he is stressed & I believe unwell due to his excessive binge drinking. There is no conversation between us, he just repeats he " dosn't want to be here any more or with me any more". He hasn't raised the subject of the house I just wanted to secure the property for all the kids, his & mine but obviously stay in the property if I could until my death. I could afford to pay off the 10,500 owing. If I did so could I transfer the ownership of the house into their names? I believe he will simply drink the money away over time.
also, Could I make him leave the home as the house is in my name?
Thanks for the advice he left today& admitted sleeping with another woman last night . so best rid.I wounder if his adultury will be to my advantage?
