Is my husband entitled to get his down payment back? 1 Answers as of June 17, 2011If my husband had the down payment but the mortgage has been paid from my paycheck for the 8 years we have been in the home, is he entitled to get his down payment back? We were not married when we purchased the home together.

Yes, he is. However, you are also entitled to be reimbursed for your mgte. payments for 8 years or at least a part of them. There will also likely be a lot of other issues that must be addressed which will offset each other's claims in many ways. Speak to a knowledgeable matrimonial attorney for more specifics. Good luck.
