Hi, thanks for your question. I am a qualified family law solicitor.
Is it the family home and how long have you both lived there? How old are you and your wife? Are there any assets?
As part of any financial settlement the court will need to consider all your assets, and all your wife's assets and assess your needs and contributions when deciding on an equitable split.
Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this.
