1) I have owned my house for over 5 years prior to my marriage. He is not on my title. We recently purchased a home together last year and we are both are on the title. The downpayment came from the sale of his home which he sold to move to here. Is he entitled for any equity in my home for the year we were married and am I entitled to anything on the new house where we are both on title and I still reside.
2) Being married for 1 year he has his own company and I am a consultant on an hourly basis. We both make around the same income but he has a 401k, savings, medical, etc and I have nothing in place. Am I entitled to anything at all?
3) I feel he married me under false pretenses because of things he has said to me. I asked him why he is a different person from time we lived in my home until now the time we are in our new home. He has become very verbally abusive and emotionally abusive and said things such as; that before he let things slide when we lived my house and now it's time he has to put his foot down. Also I mentioned I felt he used me to get married and he said so what if I did. He told me last month he wanted a new wife and that he married me out of infatuation and not for me. Is there any legal actions I can take with pain & suffering & fraud.
I just paid $72 for me to open a new window and reexplain?
