Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

You don't have to agree to this.Unless he is willing and able to buy you out completely at a price you can agree on then you can decline here.You can pursue divorce and a forced sale of all here, the court would find it community property if you were married when you purchased it.

If you have to here you can file for divorce yourself without a lawyer and seek to have it all sold for fair market value so that court divides out your share of proceeds.You can still get any child support you were owed if it was court ordered.

Self help with forms

If you cannot afford a lawyer here California permits you to file pro se on your own and obtain a divorce and property division and resolution of all the issues.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.This might be a great time to file and seek fair division of all the assets.

If you are a California resident you can file for divorce in California, I think you would do better here in property settlement.

Court would be able to divide up Oregon property as part of divorce.I would not agree to anything thats not a divorce and resolves all of this fairly.It may be a good time to file now to resolve it all.

Thanks again and the best here.
