Ok i married a woman 6 mo. ago. We are getting a divorce. I would like to know what my rights are at this point??? She is living in my house that I had purchased before we got involved. Do i have to worry bout losing my house? We live in Oregon
Under Oregon law, all of the property you owned prior to marriage is your separate property to which she has no legal claim to property rights. Also, with a 6 month marriage, she is not going to be entitled to very much of a marital property settlement and she would not be entitled to spousal support. At this point you can ask the court for an order of temporary possession of the marital home based on it being your separate property.

There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.

Yes that helps. I am trying to be nice and let her stay there. She does not want me there at all. Is there a time frame that i can give her to get out? Does that fall under what you were saying about the order of temporary possession?
You would need to file a motion for possession of the marital home and it would be up to the court to give her time to move out. Even though the home is your separate property, because it is the marital home you need to do this as part of the divorce process.
