Married for less then a year. Bought a house together. Where do I stand?

I'm after some help in guidance.

My wife and I have split up. We have been married a year next month. We jointly bought a house together. She paid a 10k deposit and I paid the mortage and bills for 13 months.

She doesn't want to buy me out and would rather take me to court to gain the house.

I have no money to my name as I paid the majority of he mortgage and bills. I don't think I can remortgage in my name as I have a very poor credit score.

She has a child who is 6 and resides with us. I have 3 boys who stays with us every other weekends.

I am deaf and one of my son is also deaf.

Please advise.

Kind regards

Is there any equity in the house? How would that stand up to the legal and selling/moving costs?

There's around 18k equity in the house.

Walk away and give it up, she put the cash in, what little there is she needs to cover the accommodation of the child.

There isn't enough to fight over.

I agree, £18k is not worth going to court over. Her needs to house a child are greater. Did you cohabit before marriage? Can she afford to carry on living in the house and take over the mortgage in her sole name? If not I would want the house sold. Try mediation, she can't be thinking it's worth court for £18k. She may as well pay you off with what court would cost.

Agreed, however you do need to wait atleast a year after marriage to be legally able to get a divorce.
