If my husband owned our home before we were married, what are my rights regarding residing in it and getting a share of the equity accrued during our marriage?
Question Details: My husband I lived together for 11 years and were married for 6 of those years. He built house prior to our marriage. What are my rights to sole residency during divorce and equity in home for last 6 years?
You don't have any rights to sole residency during divorce or to equity in the home. The house was built prior to your marriage and you do not indicate that he ever put you on the title to it; therefore, it is his home only and is not marital or joint property. You do not have any rights in or too something which predates your marriage.
