Thank you. For the purposes of the division of assets, it’s a two year marriage. You can’t get divorced until you been married for a year but financially it’s 2 years.
To be honest, I wouldn’t have wasted money applying for a separation if you are eventually going to get divorced. The process is virtually the same.
However if you still want to draw a short-term line under it, if her solicitors advise her properly, she will not contest the application because there is absolutely no point in doing so. It doesn’t make any difference to the eventual financial settlement.
If she does, it will simply be decided by a judge.
I’m afraid that your sentence about being locked out of the house does not make sense.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
