Or could my partner still make a claim to get the children's act enforced? Also is there any way a deed/declaration of trust can be thrown out by a judge and I lose my share in the property?


Yes they could still make a claim and possibly be allowed to remain there until your child is 18 so it could mean a long wait until you could realise your share.


Under what grounds can a woman ask to remain in the property until the child is 18? Is there a certain set of circumstances for this to be granted or is it general request a woman can make being the mother of the child? And how often does this get enforced? Is it a common thing or quite rare? Thanks

It would be Children’s Act. It has nothing to do with gender though, men could make an application for the benefit of a child too.

“It has nothing to do with gender though, men could make an application for the benefit of a child too.” - do you any links to cases where that has ever happened?

Hi,

I went through this scenario, my ex is allowed to stop in a house i bought, she did put a small amount of money in after selling her house, until our son is 18 or a agreed sale beforehand.
We agreed a percentage split by a Consent Order.
I had false allegations thrown at me so she could try get a non-molestation and occupation order against me.
So biased against the men when ex's can just make up things, like not cutting the grass enough, to get legal aid.

I had a similar experience. The only term I've found to accurately describe the family courts in England is that they are institutionally sexist and they tend to use a coverall term "fair outcome" to try to convince you that what they have decided is in some way reasonable.

Hello,
Need some advice regarding court order set roughy ten year's ago. I have spoken with a couple of solicitors but they just do not know whether or not i would be able to do the things i am suggesting? All they can do is offer to sign me up for £1000 and look into it for me? I wish!! Sorry to hi-jack this thread!!
