I am going thru a divorce
and we are both fighting for the house.
A unique situation where we both run our businesses out of it.
His has a landscape company and mine an environmental portrait business.
We both have strong reasons for needed the property and feel each is more needed of it but he makes about 4 times the amount of money that i do.
He's using that as a reason that he should be the one who stays.
My business will fall apart and I'll have to start all over at 55yrs old.
I have no other skills.
I can support the property by myself with some support from him. we also have a rental income and a well/solar so it's very affordable.
He is stating that i cannot keep up with the maintenance on the place and it will go down hill. We are coming to a temp. use and possession
hearing and he has purposely let the landscaping go to say that I'm not capable. (it was always his responsibility and we are still co owners.
My questions are: how much weight does the temporary ruling play on the final determination?
Does he have a valid point or is the fact he makes more money a reason why he should let me stay?
You see, i won't be able to get a loan nor replant my business. He is much more capable of starting over than i am.
what are your thoughts?
