Ok, thank you for the additional information. I will send my answer shortly.
Just contact customer service.
Firstly, for obvious reasons you should comply with your bail conditions. Do not contact your wife etc.
Secondly, you may want to contact the landlord and explain the situation and enter into an arrangement with him/her.
Are you able to pay the outstanding rent?
I think what you could do is to pay them what you can - and state that your wife should be paying the remaining part.
Depending on the outcome of your case, your wife may want to apply for a Universal Credit, which could help her with the rent.
You may try to discuss this with your wife through a solictor?
It is hard to say but if you want to keep the house then the more you pay the better. What you need to remember is that with most tenancies, each tenant is jointly responsible for the full rent. So even if you pay 50% of the rent now, and your wife fails to pay the other 50% the landlord may recover the outstanding 50% from you.
Try to speak to your wife through a solicitor and hopefully you will sort it out.
We can't take instructions from customers on this site - these are the site rules. I would love to help if I could.
