Customer Question

I bought my house before I got married, and it is in my sole name. My wife has never contributed, but we have 1 Child and married 6 years ago.
JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Is she entitled to a share of the house
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: she went on holidays outside UK 1year ago with our child, It seems she wanted a divorce now. I do not intend to let her in even if she comes back now. My name is Joe.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
