Can anyone tell me where i stand legally. We split 14 months ago and as a result have been forced to sell our home. I called around to see the children and could see my wife hiding. This is unusual as she would normaly let me in.Through the glass I could see Pickfords boxes in the hall. My wife had changed her mobile number about a week before and I told the children that I would not be asking them for her new number (as obviously they had been sworn to secrecy and I did not want to cause them distress.) Anyway after seeing the Pickfords boxes I could not contact my children. All of their phones were switched off. I have a good relationship with them so must assume they have been sworn to secrecy again. I sent a simple text message to each of them asking for them to leave their phones on and promised not to involve them in this nonsence. Later my wife informed me via texts from my sons phone that she had to vacate the family home by 31st of this month and did not know where she and the children would go as she had no money and nowhere to go. I imediately contacted her solicitor and offered to house my children if my wife could not.I also asked for a forwarding address for my children (as my wife obviously does have somewhere to go.) I have had no reply. One of my children contacted me and offered to give me the new address.I said that they should not if they have been asked not to as I dont think they should be involved in this madness.Can anyone tell me where I stand legally with regards to a forwarding address for my children.

The removal company will have the forwarding address and so will the selling agent

Absolutely under no circumstances should they give it out though - sorry - but the ex partner could be extremely agressive for all they know. I'm not saying that this chap is of course but no one's address should be given out without the permission of the third party.

Have you thought about lieing low for a couple of days and then following her home from picking the kids up from school? Going behind your wife's back and contacting her solicitor to house the children is probably not going to make you her best mate. I suggest you assist her in rehoming herself and your children either financial or by helping her contact the local social housing people.
