Will I be able to claim my house before my divorce is final? Posted on May 30, 2011
I separated in April of 2010, and we filed a separation agreement in April of 2011. I filed for divorce also in April of 2011, but the court date for the divorce proceeding isn't until July. I am in contract for a house and closing will be sometime in June. I was told that I need to have a quit claim agreement at closing. I take it that means that I have to inform my husband about the house and get his consent to sign. What rights does he have to the home I plan on purchasing? We never had a home as community property (we just rented), so I'm concerned that he may get greedy.
