Can anybody help me please? I''ve been married 1 year. We live in a rented house and have done throughout the 3 year relationship. I own a house that we have never lived in; it''s in my sole name and he had never contributed to it. Can he register matrimonal rights on the house?
No. You have to have lived in a house as a married couple to register home rights.
But fighting over that kind of thing is usually a a bit of a waste of time, you really should concentrate on getting a Consent Order, once you have that it''s quite irrelevant whether he can register home rights or not.
It is a short marriage, very likely you will each take out what you brought in.
The problem being that he has no assets, therefore nothing to lose. And you have the house. He could make waves, start court action etc. It is most likely that you''ll have to buy him off with some "go away money" because it''s cheaper to give him some cash than to go through the court process. The question is finding the figure that he will agree to.
