    I want to leave my partner and rent a house for my children and I but I know he won’t just agree to sell the house and split the proceeds so I need to know if I can go it alone now. Where can I get a definitive answer?

    I’m sorry you’re in this situation. I would say first port of call would be to get in touch with the citizens advice bureau. They will be able to advise you on what you would be entitled to and what you need to do. Especially if you’re tied in to a joint mortgage.
    Good luck, I hope it all works out for you
