Was the home bought during the marriage?

Title and loan in my name
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Thank you. If the home was bought during the marriage, it is a marital asset and your spouse would be entitled to a share in it. When parties are divorcing, the court normally issues an order, that advises that nothing should be done with the marital assets, absent a court order. As such, you should not be able to just sell it, if this is happening and they would need to cooperate.
