In the process of separating with my partner of 13 yrs we have an 8 yr together and also my 14yr Old son who has been brought up by him.
We are not married and have a house – all of which is in his name, however I am on the council tax statements and pay all the bills in the property. Please any advice and what to do next or where I go from here would help me so much right now. Trying to keep a ‘normal’ family life for the sake of my two boys but it’s so hard. Is there light at the end of this tunnel ?
I feel for you. I am currently in same position. Two chn 13 an 10. It was shock news to me a few weeks ago and I am still trying to get my head around it. I have no idea where to start. We have mortgage but I cant afford it by myself and cant afford rent in SE England either. Also trying to keep things normal-weight for the children, but it’s difficult. 2022 is on it’s way and I am dreading it!
Have you and your partner talked about living arrangements at all? If you are wondering about advice in terms of where you stand with the property then I’d suggest you get in touch with a solicitors who specialise in family law. The one I contacted was brill as they gave me a free 1/2 hr consultation ( check out solicitors who do this as quite a few do) I wrote down all the questions I had and gave the context and got really good advice on my position including ownership laws, beneficiary interest and steps to take next if needed. Whatever you do its really important to get legal advice. Good luck….. I also looked at citizens advice pages and other websites about separation and finances, living arrangements etc… sure gingerbread will have some resources too..
Going through a similar process as you. Still living together whilst we sort living arrangements
as JuneB says get some legal advice as each situation different. My understanding though is it’s irrelevant who is on the deeds. If you have been together as long as you then you will have an entitlement to a share of the house
