I am sorry to hear about this situation.
My questions are is it legal for him to hide the deed even if he paid for the house but both names are ***** ***** deed?
Yes. Or rather, nothing states that he has to give you a copy of the deed, even if you are joint owners and husband and wife. However, all someone in your situation has to do is go down to the county records office and get another copy. If you tell me what county the property is in, I can tell you the address.
Also can my name be taken off the title or deed without my consent?
Last can he add someone to the deed without my consent?
He owns half of the property, I am guessing. If so, he can covey (give away) part or all of his interest - yes. But not your half.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal.
