My mate is currently breaking up with his Mrs. Would appreciate any advice from anyone who has been in a similar situation or know the rules. Bit complicated in the sense that he has a child from a previous marriage and she has one from a previous relationship. Quite conveniently having found a posting near to her parents like she whinged for she has asked him to leave and is refusing to budge from the quarter as she has nowhere else to live. Now he has the responsibility of being a single parent but has been told the following He needs to get out of a volatile atmosphere. He cannot have 2 quarters on the go at the same time? I understand that in these cases there is a certain amount of time a spouse can stay there before they become an illegal occupant, is it 60 days (the breakup is just over a week old so some time to go yet)? Does he have to wait until this passes before he can be housed with his daughter? What can he do in the meantime? In advice, cheers for any advice I can pass on.
