Can my husband get half of my house in a divorce? Posted on June 02, 2011
My husband and I are getting a divorce. He has informed me that he is fighting me for 1/2 of my share in the house. The house was willed to my 2 brothers and I before I was married. I have heard of something called the Dower Rights. Is this still in affect and would it apply to me? He has also said he is going after me for spousal support. We have been married 9 years last Feb. 14th. Neither of us is working at the moment. He hasn't worked for the last 4-5 years. I have been out of work since last Sept.2010. When he was working he always made a lot more than I ever have. Does he have a chance to get 1/2 of my share in the house?
