How about this one? Left wife, 1 daughter etc etc (see am I being screwed thread)Thing is the house is not in my name, it is my wifes name (not yet divorced) I say wifes name, its in her previous married name and her ex husbands, or at least any post that came would read that way.
Basically, as we were married 9 years and obviously I lived there, paid bills etc etc do i have any rights to a pay out on the property. I appreciate her and daughter need a roof over their head and cant be forced to sell but could/am I due any monies out of the home? mortgage is about 45K house worth 160k so decent equity, although she says there are debts from her previous divorce (legal aid??) on the house. Any help please... I'm not money grabbing at all, just i contributed to 10 years of living and maintaining it surely that most count for something?????
A likely practical solution to your share of the house is to agree that your share (20% for example) is retained in the house - with the house to be sold when your daughter reaches 19. Then you get your share.
