Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Unfortunately, I am unavailable for a call, however if you do wish to speak on phone, one of my colleagues will receive the call request and arrange to call you shortly.
For the meantime, I can answer some questions for you through chat, if that's alright with you.
Yes, of course. It would help me to provide a much specific answer on your case.
Just to clarify, who owns the property? And what is your desired outcome for this?
In the case of your husband wanting you to move out - as the wife, you have strong rights to stay in the family home and your partner would have to get a court order (e.g. an exclusion order) before they could make you leave the house.
If your partner tries to force you out, this is illegal eviction. Illegal eviction is a criminal offence and you can report your partner to the police. In addition, you may be able to take out an injunction, a non-harassment order or another type of court order against them to prevent them acting in this way.
In the case of divorce - a divorce can be stopped if either one party in the marriage does not accept that the relationship has broken down or does not agree that the grounds stated in the divorce petition are correct. This is called a defended divorce.
Yes, of course. As what I have stated above, although your husband owns the house solely, still as his married partner you gain occupancy rights on the property. He cannot simply tell you to move out anytime, and if he does take force to do this, then you are entitled to call the police for this matter.
I understand. Apologies for the delayed replies as I am not always online, but rest assured I will provide an answer as soon as I am.
To provide further answer to your query - by accused, I believe that investigation is still taking place, which means that the child protection hasn't been finalised yet. The investigation shall be carried out as soon as possible, and no later than 28 days. In this case, I would advise to leave the house for now in the duration of the investigation.
You have stated in your above reply that there has been a child protection in place, and that you are required to not be in the same house with your son. If you do not comply, the social worker may take your case to court and ask a judge to start care proceedings.
