Where to start. Have had a really bad year so far and it’s coming to a head. Depressed alcoholic partner is constantly drinking. Hes just got out of psychiatric hospital. We have got 3 kids and have had to move out to my parents with them as couldn’t cope and he cant be trusted when under the influence. Not ideal as they should be in the family home. He is using money we don’t have.Property is owned jointly but wondered what I can do to protect myself and children financially and should the kids and me have priority to be in the house? Any advice at all would be much appreciated.
