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.
