Thank you for your reply, friend.
Under RCW 26.16.010
, this would be considered the separate property of the husband. In other words, it is not yours, but his.
If he does not have a Will, then all his property (including the home) is divided by default succession law, which may be found here
. This means that you would get HALF of his property automatically under the default laws, which may include the home, by default.
However, if he writes a will and leaves you out of it, you may not get the home. So you may wish to remedy this in one of two ways:
1) Have him draft a Will (let me know if you need a free template by using the REPLY button) that gives you the home; or
2) Have him add your name to the deed (if he does,he cannot write you out of the will, at least for the home, as it becomes half yours).
Either way, you would then secure
the home, so to speak.
