I have been separated from my ex for nearly 7 years. Three children, three properties jointly owned. All three children refuse to see him. The youngest one may see him in a contact center if the judge allows it (long story).
He is in the former "matrimonial" home (although we never married) alone. He has already stated in mediation that he "has no intention" to cohabit. So he does not need a large family home for him to rattle around in.
I am applying for the sale of the houses. Because two of the children are living with me full time and the fact that he refuses to pay CSA for the children, could I apply for a larger share of the equity as I am unlikely to ever receive any CSA payments or any financial assistance whatsoever in the future. The oldest no longer lives at home.
