Resolving financial issues for husband without forcing sale of family home

Corey acted for a husband with mental health issues in an application for financial remedy following divorce, in a case listed for financial dispute resolution hearing and where several very young children were living with the wife.

The case involved three properties –   one in joint names, the others owned individually by each party, and central to it was the need to release equity the husband without the family home being sold.

The court ordered that the wife and children should retain the family home, and that the wife should raise a lump sum in settlement of the husband’s interest, by selling the property in her name if necessary. Meanwhile Corey’s client would retain the third property, which was in his name.
