Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
When you say you gave her the house - did you have a financial order at the time?
If you didn't have a financial order, then you can apply for this now.
You should be able to claim a portion of the matrimonial home as it is not being used for the benefit of your child.
As regards ***** ***** you could arrange this via the CMS, but if he is residing with grandparents I would suggest that they make the claim.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You could apply on their behalf, if you explain the situation to the CMS.
As your son does not live with you thought the claim may fail on that basis.
But there's no harm in asking.
I would encourage the grandparents to apply though - they are only asking for what is legally due, a parent is bound by law to provide for their child.
As to the form A, it's here:
