UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How much is the property worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
What income do you have?
Does your wife work if so what does she earn?
How long have you lived together in total?
I am a little confused - are you on Conditional or Unconditional bail?
There are two issues here - your seeing your child - and what will happen to the house is the long term.
With regard to your child you need to ask for the Bail conditions to be changed to allow you to instruct a solicitor to contact your ex to arrange
Your child is entitled to ocntact with both parents - although you may have to accept contact at a local Contact Centre for a few months before it move on.
The house issue is less positive I am afraid.
If your ex remains in the UK with the children then she will be able to remain in the matrimonial home until the youngest child is 18 or your ex cohabits, at which point it will be sold and the equity divided between you.
I am sorry not to give better news - please ask if you need further details
The same I am afraid
I am afraid that the housing needs of the children are the priority for the court so an order for sale is unlikely to be made
You will have to pay child and possibly spouse maintenance - and she will have to get work as well and pay the bills from that
