I've posted on ;relationship' page today too as getting advice on my abusive partner. Thought I would ask if anyone knew where I would stand legally if our mortgage is in joint names, we have 2 ds's, however, I can't go on how we are. My partner is verbally abusing me and is so arrogant, he lost it the other morning and threw me on to the bed with his hands round my throat in front of my 2 sons aged 3 and 1. I can't bring them up like this anymore and want him out the house. I was so close to going to the police on Tuesday morning and now wish I had. Any advice would be appreciated.

go to see your solicitor who can apply for an Occupation Order ordering occupancy to you and kids and getting him to leave the property.

Thanks DLI.

I have not got a solicitor but will find one but can this be done even although there have been no witnesses apart from my 3 year old! I have tried to ask him to leave but he is having none of it. Happy for me and boys to leave though.

You don't need a solicitor for an occupation order, contact your local county court with a family section for the forms needed.

Women's aid will be able to advise you and provide support to ensure yours and your children's safety.
