Did your spouse applied for divorce?
In most cases, when a court imposes financial remedies to split the assets, it will make the decision based upon:
It doesn’t matter whether the property is in just one or both of your names. You could both still have the right to live or stay there.
The court will always endeavour to meet the needs of any children first, and then the needs of the partners secondly.
Both of you have legal ‘home rights’ until a financial settlement is made, or until financial remedies are imposed by the court as a permanent arrangement. Home rights refer to your rights to the family home, even if you don’t legally own it or are not named on the mortgage. This means that neither of you can be forced to leave the matrimonial home unless there is domestic violence or court order.
To give you more overview, home rights permit you and your spouse to continue occupying your marital home regardless of who bought it.
