If my husband cheated on me, can I make him leave the house to find somewhere else to live even though the house is in his name?
Question Details: My husband and I have been together for 7 years and have been married for 3. We have 2 kids, 1 not from him and 1 from him. I am expecting our 3rd. The house we live in is in his name and his mom's names, not mine. My husband cheated on me and I don't know if I can kick him out or do I have to look for a new place to live?
I am so sorry for the situation and the stress you are under. Take care of yourself especially right now. So the issue with the house is complicated since more information is needed to detwemine if you will have an interest in same in a divorce. But if it is the marital home and family home for you and your children it is likely that a judge will order you to have exclusive use and occupancy during the pendency of the divorce proceedings. After you are divorced is a different story and again, dependent on information not a part of this question. Seek help from an attorney to file for divorce and pendente lite motion setting support, housing, etc. Good luck.
