we have been married for 42 years and i want to know if it is legal for him to do this and what are my rights
Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
In your other question, I have suggested that the best thing you should do is to see your lawyer as quickly as possible. Your husband can buy another property, but your present property and the new property are both relationship property, as are the contents of your house. This means you need to divide the contents. Your lawyer will help you negotiate an agreement, or if you cannot reach an agreement help you with bringing a claim in the family Court. In this situation, I strongly advise you to see a lawyer. I realise you may not have much income, but you may qualify for legal aid. If you want some names of lawyers, please let me know your city and I will suggest names
