Hi everyone, it has been years since I have posted anything on this forum but I really need some help and I am unsure where I turn to next.
I have secondary progressive multiple sclerosis and I’ve had it for the last seven years and I also have other lung problems which has put me into intensive care on many occasions so basically my health is not very good and it is getting worse.
I have two children aged 15 and 18 and had been married for 23 years but last year my wife left me in July because she never loved me any more and she now lives around 3 miles away from me and she is renting the property she is in.
We lived altogether for the last 12 years in South Wales and 18 months ago I was given a Disabled Facilities Grant to adapt our property and the total was just over £30,000 and this grant would need to be paid back in full if the property was sold.
I am now going through a divorce and I have agreed to place our property for sale and this is where I need help.
The property where I am is in both our names and I am unable to buy my wife out and she is also in the same position and this is the reason why the property is up for sale. But I have been told it may be possible for me to get the courts to give me permission to stay in my house because of the adaptions and I would also find it very difficult to get any social housing or to get a privately rented adapted house.
I pay the mortgage that is in both our names in full every month and I also pay everything else that we both used to pay and I have not asked her for any money.
At present I have a solicitor who is dealing with my divorce and this is one expense I really could have done without and I really do not want to employee another solicitor due to the expense and being totally honest I just do not have the extra funds to do this.
If somebody could tell me where or what I need to do that would be great, I really hate asking for help but I am settled where I live and as the property has been heavily adapted for my needs I really do not want to leave and I am so scared on where I will end up.
Many thanks for reading my posting and I really hope somebody out there can help.
