Daughter getting a divorce
in Texas, as of Feb 2015 separation
. They have been married 10 years. Husband said she gets the truck, 2002 Silverado (that I just paid 900 to have brakes and tires put on it) and he gets the house (according to him).
They have two kids, 8 and 4. They are having joint custody
but he wants primary so she can't take them to WA state (where her family lives) without his permission. He said it is for his reassurance, even though she would never do that to him, other than for a vacation to see grandma.
The house was a "shell" they bought 3 years ago, and moved on to land they are buying from his step dad. (his mother
is recently deceased). Since they filed the papers, he said he is "letting" her live there (his words), and only gives her $25 a week for gas. He now expects her to look for a job, (she has been a stay a home mom per his request for the past 5 years) and still pick the kids up from school/daycare by 2:30 and 4pm.
Questions are: Doesn't she have a legal right to half the house...even if he lives there for 30 years? Can he MAKE her move out of the house? Isn't he still financially responsible for her until she can get a job and an place to live?
She is in Texas with no relatives of her own. I am trying to assist her from Wa state.
