If the property is jointly owned then both parties are entitled to live there but in reality it can be extremely difficult to live under the same roof while you’re going through a divorce. Even if the house is owned in your sole name or your spouse’s sole name, both of you are still likely to have rights of occupation of the house. However, it may be possible for us to negotiate that your spouse should leave the home or for us to get a court order requiring them to do so. Please speak with us so that we can discuss the options available in your case.
