Going to court regarding property
October 04, 2021 12:26AM

I’m after some advise if anyone has information on this situation that would be great.

I moved out of the family home due to his affair and then abuse, I now rent a property and I now work. I didn’t work before I stayed home and looked after the children for 9 years. The children we have 50/50 which works well and the children are happy with this.

I have now been moved out nearly 3 years, I left majority of the contents due to his behaviour and also the guilt trips regarding the children. for the last 2 years I have been trying to get my equity in the property and get a divorce, the divorce is not a problem but the equity is, my ex wanted to buy me out I was fine with this but he wanted to buy me out at a much lower price. I am now thinking my only option is court but where would I stand with this in regards to what we might be entitled to? Who would pay the court fees etc? I do have a solicitor and am receiving legal aid but I know I will need to pay this back once I receive my equity. My ex refuses to sell the property so this also isn’t an option. He pays the mortgage which is approx £900 as I need to pay rent which is £1100 I only work part time earning just above minimum wage he earns well approx £45k.

If anyone has any information that would be fantastic Thankyou x
