Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, thanks for your question. Where exactly did you get married (location, city, mosque etc?)
Thanks for confirming. Firstly, as your marriage is only an Islamic marriage, legally this is not a civil marriage and neither of you can claim financial relief from the other under English law. You would therefore be deemed cohabitees. In those circumstances, unless he can prove that there was an intention that he be compensated for his contributions or if there is a formal agreement/contract, legally he is not entitled to the property as it is in your sole name.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.,
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 30 years.
I am afraid that the nature of the relationship between you - the Religious marriage - means that the court will infer that there was an intention that he would share in the family home.
That being the case there is little doubt that the court will award his a share of the equity - when your child is 18 - but hopefully not 50%
