If my husband owned his land and house before we were married

This answer was rated:

I live in Texas -

If my husband owned (inherited the land) his land and house before we were married and now after 19 years of marriage and 12 year old triplets am I entitled to half of it?

His aunt gave him an additional 4 acres that is adjoined to his land after we were married is that considered community property since he received it after we were married?

Can he make us move out of the house if we don't want to or can he make me move without my kids?

Is there anywhere to get free help with a divorce or for a woman with kids to get help getting back on her feet?

Unfortunately no. Unless he added you to the deed, this is considered his separate property regardless of the number of years you have been married. Separate property is any property acquired before the marriage or acquired as a gift or inheritance during the marriage.

Now if any marital funds have been contributed to pay for this property, it is possible to seek reimbursement of the extent of the marital contributions.

His aunt gave him an additional 4 acres that is adjoined to his land after we were married is that considered community property since he received it after we were married?

Depends on the intent of the aunt. If this was a gift for his sole benefit, it would be considered separate property. If the intent was to give it to the both of you, then the property can be considered marital property.



Can he make us move out of the house if we don't want to or can he make me move without my kids?

Absent a restraining order or a court order, you nor the children can be forced out from the family home. You have established some rights to reside on the property, so he should not force you out unless there is a court order asking you to vacate.


Is there anywhere to get free help with a divorce or for a woman with kids to get help getting back on her feet?

Your local legal aid clinics should be able to help you with your divorce issues. It is also possible to retain an attorney to request that your spouse be responsible for his fees if you are financially dependent on your husband and have no source of funds of your own.
