Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi! I am Anu, a qualified solicitor in England and Wales. I will be assisting you with your query today. I may need to ask a few questions before I can address your query.Please bear in mind this is a chat service and there maybe delays in responding due to assisting other customers.
Please confirm are the properties jointly owned? if so, what is your share in the property?
You also mention there are two stepchildren, are these your partner's children?
thank you for your response. I will try and address each of your queries:
1) As the mortgage is in your joint names, you will be responsible for paying your half of the mortgage, whether or not you live in the property.
2) unless something is agreed between you and your expartner, you will not be entitled to recover the costs of the rent. I note there are two houses, are you not able to live one whilst your partner lives in the other?
3) You will be entitled to the possessions you have brought.
i hope this answers your query. if not, please let me know.
lease kindly confirm whether you require any further assistance.
