Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

How long have you lived together and are there any children involved

What other assets are there and what income do you each have

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No children / we have lived together for a year whilst engaged before our wedding last June . IMy husband works and I work freelance part time as am starting up a small business . He is from a fairly comfortable family though he did tell me our house was in both his and his fathers name as his father was guaranteeing the mortgage my husband pays . I have now discovered via the land registry that it is solely owned by my father in law. I have no assets as I lived with my parents prior to our engagement and moved into a flat my mum owned for a while . Now if I do decide to leave my husband due to marital difficulties I am not sure what my position would be legally . Thank you
