I’m sorry to say that it’s not a case of not selling the house in him getting nothing, it’s going to be a case of how much he gets out of it.
You presumably split up when your daughter was approximately six years of age although you don’t say how long you were married for before that and how long you would together before you were married.
Whilst you may have owned the house for a considerable period of time before you got married, getting married cements the husband’s financial interest.
The court will certainly take into account your needs but all it would do is adjust the division of proceeds in your favour.
So I’m sorry to say that it really comes down, as I said earlier, to negotiate with him as to what he gets out of it because in my opinion you keeping the whole property and him getting nothing is not on the cards.
Thank you for letting me assist you with your legal question. I am glad that I was able to help.
I am not certain whether that answers the question for you or not, but I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
It will be my pleasure to help you again either further with this or any future questions you have
