Thank you for the question. Firstly, assuming the home is the matrimonial home i.e the home you lived in as a married couple, then the court may likely consider it a matrimonial asset and it would then be part of the finical divorce proceedings. However, the court must take into consideration many different aspects when looking at finical splits (if you are unable to agree between yourselves). However, it is important to note that the court's ruling will be final. Therefore what I would strongly recommend is taking some advice about your pre-matrimonial assets and also matrimonial assets and rights and look at coming to what is called a financial agreement moving forward. If you are both able to agree on a finical agreement then it will save you money and avoid judicial intervention in relation to the split. It is not likely the court would award your partner the house, of course, each case is judged on its own circumstances.
