Resolved Question:

When I asked you the previous questions, I had a lawyer who was telling me different froom your responses. What you answered was in line with what I had read upon. This lawyer is still saying that my husband has rights because the house was built after the marriage and that becomes community property. Is he right or is he just after the money?

Well, if the house was built after AH purchased the lots, I suppose a claim could be made that the actual house may be community property since it was acquired (built) during the marriage if it was built with marital funds. It would be up to the attorney to somehow prove that marital funds were used, although it is likely. To be honest, I don't know how he could definitively do so, although he may be able to convince a judge and jury that it is reasonable to believe that to be the case. The only concern is that this may be a long challenge and the attorney's meter would be running the entire or lose.
