We bought our house back in 03. It was titled in my name only because H was recovering from a bankruptcy with his previous marriage. We married in 04.
We have now separated and of course "now" he wanted us to go up together and put us both on the title to try and refinance ( to see about getting better interest rate).... of course he told me this the day after he set up a separate checking account for himself.. So of course I told him the house is staying in my name only...
I figured he was trying to do this in case we divorce and he would have legal rights to the equity of the house?
My question is that even though its in only my name , I will not be able to afford the payment on my own. So since he has still contributed to it, would he have any rights pertaining to the house?
I have an appt. with an attorney Wednesday to learn all my rights and to see about setting up a "legal" separation.
