My daughters husband has decided to move out of the family

Resolved Question:

My daughter's husband has decided to move out of the family home and move into a rented flat, leaving her to pay the full mortgage. The house is in joint names; there has been no separation agreement between them, although he is has agreed to fund 50% of their infant's nursery fees - but nothing else!
Am I correct in assuming that as the mortgage is in joint both their names he should be funding 50% of the payments?

Awan-Legal : Hi
Awan-Legal : This is mainly a matter for negotiation at this stage unless she proceeds to court and requests an order for him to pay towards the mortgage or it may be easier to get a family law mediator involved to negotiate an agreement between them.
Awan-Legal : The mortgage company can enforce the payments through either of them as they are joint owners.
