I am now divorced more than a year ago. My ex and I shared own our 2 bedroom flat. Our two teens (16/12) shared a room and my ex stays in the other room while I sleep in the main front room. I thought my ex would move out after the divorce but he is still here. It’s a mental torture with him being around. He also has recently been made redundant. Atm, he pays the rent to our housing association along with utility bills, council tax and his own food (& his own cc bills) I pay for other bills including TV, Internet, mobile bills (not his), other household bills. I no longer have to pay for the mortgage as my kind family loaned me the money to pay it off (he didn’t know that). I get by with my small school pay, and some universal credits. I like to know how I can force my ex to move out, I am now in a bad position as he won’t have a job soon and does that mean he will stay put longer? His parents won’t help or take him in. I want to take him to courts but am scared that I will lose this home to him since he is jobless and I am not. I have been the main support for my kids for awhile as he does not do much around the house apart from looking after his own needs first. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
