Hi, thank you for your question. As the property was the former matrimonial home and you are married, this creates matrimonial home rights for you even though it is in her sole name. This means that you have a right to occupy the property until divorce and can register this interest on the title of the property using from HR1 with the land registry. Your wife will be given notice of this registration and it can assist you to prevent or delay a sale of the property given that you have an interest in it.
As part of the divorce you are both entitled to seek financial relief from the other, and this will include taking into account all matrimonial assets, income, liability and both your needs as well as the needs of the children.
For further information please confirm:
-How old are you both?
-How long have you been married?
-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?
-What other assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?
-What are your respective incomes?
In the meantime if you found my information provided helpful please could you rate my response positively using the stars at the top of this page as I will not be credited for my response without a positive rating.
