What can I do if the house in the divorce is not in my name? 1 Answers as of April 21, 2011

My wife and I purchased a home 10 years ago. I gave her $17,000.00 for the home. I never knew the home was not in my name until 2 years ago. By law, do I get half the house?

It would appear you have an equitable argument that can be made as to why you deserve half the house or at least some portion of it. This is especially so if you put $17,000 into it. You need to speak to an experienced matrimonial lawyer about your case to pursue your rights in this case. Good luck.
