Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is the property worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
What other assets and debts are there and what income do they each have?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

property worth 375000,no mortgage,wife state pension,husband savings approx. 40000,no debt both 70yrs of age.

Then within the financial side of divorce proceedings she will indeed be able to force a sale of the property and the equal division of all the assets
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
