Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further details first
is it planned that the child will remain in the UK?
Where will he live?
Just to check - you wish to continue with OUT the call?
If your flat was sold where would your spouse and the child live?
How much does a cheaper two bedroom property in the same school area cost to buy?
What monies do you owe and to whom?
My apologies for the delay I have been offline
Could you explain when you were married and where?
May I ask why you referred to your wife as your "civil partner"?
Your marriage does not need to be Registered for it to be valid in the UK.
What income do you and your wife each have and could she raise a mortgage?
I am afraid that you are not going to be able to force your wife to leave the matrimonial home.
She has the right to live there so long as you are married - and a financial claim on it as well.
Even more crucial is the fact that the family Court will consider the housing needs of the child to be of the utmost importance and that means that unless an alternative home can be PURCHASED then a sale is not likely to be ordered
I am sorry - I appreciate that this is not the news that you wished to hear - please ask if you need further details
If you divorce her then your wife can make a financial claim within the divorce proceedings and have the right to remain in the property
