Hi I went through a legal separation with the wife about 25 years ago but we have not had a divorce, as there were 3 children involved. I bought a ten acre property in 1999 with a house, so they could have stability. Meanwhile I worked for on rotating shifts in Melbourne until 2009 when the plant was shut down. All the children moved in with me to rental properties as soon as they were of age. The wife has been living there ever since while I was paying the rates, insurances etc. My question is, I need to sell the property now, can she stop this sale? I have no problem in giving her half of the proceeds as property settlement.
