I’ve asked him to be fair and give me 3 years ish to sort myself out but he’s insisting on selling in Jan. He doesn’t care I’ll have no income and kids will have to leave there home and probably school.
You definitely need to get some professional advice as the law is different if you are not married. There is something called a continuation order whereby you can ask the court for a specified amount of time to stay in the house. I don’t know what the situation is with common law rather than matrimonial law. I am looking into continuation orders as in a similar situation but the continuation order is an extension of matrimonial rights to the home. Best thing you can do is get legal advice as soon as you can. Even just an initial appointment can give you so much information.
Another thing to note is my solicitor said that equity split starts at 50/50 but children’s needs fit into the equation too so it maybe that you ex would receive less than 50% share.
