Married 56 years. Jointly purchased land years ago. Husband

Married 56 years. Jointly purchased land years ago. Husband refused to put my name on deed-or anything else. He has bullied me for the duration of the marriage; I felt I had no options but to go along to get along. Husband has given land parcels to family members without informing me. Husband's Will probably leaves me out. He has not supported me financially in decades. Am I entitled to an interest in the land if his Will excludes me? Can he throw me out of the marital home when he dies? I have no money or other place to live. Is divorce an option, or should I wait to contest the Will? I don't know how the land was conveyed- if there's a deed or some other writing. A friend is writing this for me. Thank you.

I have rented a 6th floor Condo since 2004. I moved to the location as it was advertised as an "un-obstructed view of Tampa Bay". over the years, an ugly pine has grown up and almost completely blocked my view. I've tried to work with the HOA, going as far as pay to have it trimmed or removed at my expense. Do I have any legal leg to stand on ?Thanks in advance,MIKE

Second opinion] - My wife and I rented a home in Arizona (a communtiy property state) three years ago. The lease is up today. Two months ago, while I was out of state working, my wife decided to re-locate herself closer to her work, so she, without my consent, signed a lease to rent a home, and she has refused to tell me the address. She feels that we are separated, although I do not agree with that. I have since found out the address, but I have not informed her that I know it.My questions:In a community property state, since her debt is my debt, can she deny me access to live in the home she rented?Should I contact the landlord and explain the situation and get the lease modified to include my name?Should I

I bought a house 10 yrs. ago, and then married and refinanced the mortgage from a 30 yr. adjustable rate to a fixed 15 yr. I am on the note, but my husband now is on the title and not on the note. For the past 8 yrs. he has free-loaded off me and has been unemployed. I want out. I put the house on the market, and am waiting for a buyer. Do I have to split 50/50 because of Texas Law community property?

We live in Florida. When I married my wife I "bought into"

We live in Florida. When I married my wife I "bought into" her home. We did this by refinancing the home in my name. I made a significant deposit to help bring the mortgage payments lower. The mortgage is currently in my name only. (My wife could not be added to the deed at that time due to "credit issues" caused by a previous marriage and divorce.) At closing my wife stated that she is no longer owner of her home after paying into it for many years and the closing attorney stated after the title had been filed, I could file a Quit Claim deed adding my wife to the title. My intent is to give the house to my wife upon my death and to allow her to pass it on to her heir and not allow my grown daughter to have access to it at any time. Is the Quit Claim deed the way to go about it or is there something else we should do? The Quit Claim deed wording appears to have me relinquish all rights. Does Florida law provide for community property, even if a Quit Claim is filed?
