Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
There is no legal requirement that you place her name on title.
In the event of a split, her claim to the house, which is now not based on direct ownership, would be an issue of actual title and ownership, rather than a spousal claim.
So, that is the risk you take by adding her to title now.
Correct, without being on title she could assert a claim to the appreciation during the marriage, but not direct ownership, as she would have were she directly added to the title.
It is completely within the discretion of the curt how long she would be able to stay.
With minor children it is tough to get the court to order removal from the marital home.
Most likely the issue will be resolved through an agreement between you and her, rather than a hearing before the judge.
