Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I would like to help you with this, but I need some clarification.
Do you own the house outright?
Is it in your name only or your husbands only?
Or do you mean you are renting?
Since you bought the house during the marriage, it doesn't matter whose name is XXXXX XXXXX deed or who paid the money. It belongs to both of you as marital property. He cannot throw you out in the street. The court will decide during the divorce, who gets the house and whether the other party gets paid his or her part of the value of the house. Usually, but not always, if a person has custody of the children, they get to stay in the house.
Be sure to discuss all this with your divorce attorney to be fully informed about all your personal circumstances.
