First of all, know that without a court order in either separation or divorce proceeding, he has little right to kick you out in any case. But strictly speaking, this boils down to if this is separate property or community property
. From what you are telling me, it MAY be considered his sole property but you are entitled to whatever money you put into the house. However, this is a complicated case because there is question of misleading intent, etc. While the actual ownership will be determined in court, he cannot meanwhile simply 'kick' you out. Separate/communal property is not automatic - it has to be assigned by Court in most cases, such as this, where one person would be left without a shelter. Therefore, you are arguably not mandated to leave UNTIL/UNLESS he gets the house named as separate property by a Court of law in either a separation or divorce hearing.I hope you found my answer helpful, and if so please click on the ACCEPT button.

While the legal system tries to be inclusive of every possibility, sometimes, people are ethically wronged but have limited legal avenues seek relief. If so, please understand that this is not the expert’s fault, but the way of circumstance.
