I really need some general advice on the following:
Wife left the home just over two months ago and had informed me that she wants a divorce and for me to leave the home or she will go to court to force me out, she will not admit she has left and is still having post under her name delivered to the house. I have two sons aged 21 and 23 living with me, whereas she "considred her housing needs" by moving in with her parents. I am really unsure on how to proceed with this.
Thanks everso for any guidance
Tell her that you will not be moving out. She cannot force you to move out simply because she wants to. It is your home just as much as it is hers and you have a right to live there. Don''t worry about these idle threats she is making.
Thanks again, there is no issue of domestic violence (from me anyway), wife can be nasty sometimes though! But she is not living at home as she left on 08.03. so I have no worries on that score, she also visits when I am not there and sometimes when I am there also. There is no immediate aminosity at the moment, but this will change no doubt when I say no to leaving! I have been told I could be ordered to leave through an "Occuaption Order" ?? Wife had been diagnosed as suffering from ME a few years ago, and this coupled with a fairly low income (working part time) seems to indicate that she will gain occupancy, even though I have been diagnosed with depression... No threat to sons, as they are grown up and we are all very close!!
Whoever is giving you this advice, I do not think they are very reliable. An occupation order is extremely unlikely in these circumstances. It is your home. Why would a court order you to leave? Courts do not make orders simply because one spouse wishes it. They have to follow the law.
Cheers, you are right, maybe I am listening to bad advice from someone who has gone through a divorce!!
I will go and seek professional advise, but sometimes answers like your''s give a little confidence to go and do this without expecting all bad news - Thanks again mate..
