Hi been together over 39 years lived in his family home with 6 kids. Marriage now over and I've moved out at his request waiting for council to help. I work full time and 3 of the kids with me. What are my rights to support for the children and I paid into the house for over 30 years. Thanks

What do you mean waiting for the council to help?

FlappyRose Tue 07-Nov-17 19:54:03

I don’t understand. What do you mean by ‘his family home’. Who actually owns it? Where do the other kids live?

WitchesHatRim Tue 07-Nov-17 19:55:11

How old are the DC?

You need legal advice really.

You shouldn’t have moved out. Have council told you they will help? They are rather funny about people making themselves intentionally homeless.

Whatever your husband owns is half yours surely.

Move back into your home. It's a marital asset and half yours.

Move back in urgently. Your case weakens if you leave voluntarily. Definitely seek legal advice ASAP. Citizens advice bureau can advise you some of the way. Speak to a good friend and let them emotionally support you. If your DC are under 19 then he'll need to provide roof over their and your head.

Good wishes and strength sent to you.

That's a joint responsibility not just her stbxh.

As said. You need proper legal advice.

Hi thanks guys. I moved out as he became abusive towards me. The older children will stay with dad but younger ones want to come with me. The council are trying to help me with affordable private rental but proving difficult. The home was bought by his parents before we married so have no real claim on it. Don't know what I should expect him to help with as I'm homeless and without the children which he is enjoying. Any help please

Apply for maintenance...

Bp17 Wed 08-Nov-17 22:42:01

Thank you but do I have to get the kids living with me first. I did ask him for some help with deposit on a flat and he ignored me but told the kids he's giving me nothing

The home was bought by his parents before we married so have no real claim on it.

I’m sure this isn’t the case, it’s considered an asset and you are entitled to at least 50 % minimum.

Go and get legal advice straight away, report the abusive incidents to the police and your local DA services.

You need legal advice. If the homr is in their namr but you paid the mortgage, its not straight forward.

How old are the kids that are moving with you?

My understanding is that you will jointly own the home. See a solicitor asap. Don't know if maintenance is payable if three children are living with each of you. I imagine it will depend on your incomes

SheRaaarghPrincessOfPower Thu 09-Nov-17 06:05:58

Go and see a solicitor.

Pretty sure that if you've been married and living in that house then it's a joint asset.

Justoneme Thu 09-Nov-17 06:14:25

Right go to a solicitor.... I know you haven't got any money now but the solicitor will sort it out!

Go to a good solicitor who deals with dirvoce.... they will ensure you get the money.

Then phone up the child maintenance service; they will give you money for the 3 children.

You husband sounds disgusting ... don't back down.

Solicitor
Child maintenance

You need to speak to a solicitor. How old are the children that are living with you?

But in the same breath OP is responsible for financially supporting the children who do not live with her

Thanks all will need to get a solicitor now I was trying to avoid it but he is leaving me no option. The kids coming with me are 11 15 and 13. The older kids are in their twenties. He is being awful saying nasty things about me to the kids. Awful situation.

Justoneme Thu 09-Nov-17 19:07:03

Keep safe x

Are you separated from them now? I wouldn’t leave it too long if he is already playing mind games. You may end up with no children with you.
