Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
HelloYou should try and seek financial advice and see what the mortgage pay out figure is.Usually courts will figure that out, if parties cannot afford to live there, it will be sold and both parties must find somewhere else to live.
Affairs have no real bearing on family law proceedings, there is no fault divorce now in Australian law, well, since 1975 anyway.
My advice would be have the property sold, and perhaps she may even wake up to herself and reconcile, but in the mechanics of it, if parties cannot afford to live there alone, the home needs to be sold and the assets split.
thats fair enough but if we can just about scrape to live in the family home seperately who would the judge lean towards more the wife or the father,probably the father i presume.
