What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? texas
My husband and i are having problems and he refuses to leave the house. we were married to each other for many years, then divorced, and within 2 years, we married each other again. when we divorced i kept the house that was titled in both of our names (so was the mortgage) and he got most of the liquid assets. our assets were basicly split equally when we divorced. the main asset i kept was our house and the equity tht was in it. At the time of the divorce he signed something, a quit claim deed i think, that was filed with the court and the title on this same house is now in my name only. the mortage company still shows both of us as lienholders though since we originally qualified using both of our information. i pay all of the household bills including the mortgage and taxes. we have kept separate checking accts and savings, retirement, everything. we don't have any joint credit cards or joint accounts at all. its been almost 2 years since we got married again and i'm ready to separate. he says i can't make him leave since the house is now community property. is this true? again, its titled now in my name only. if he refuses to leave, can i change the locks legally since his property is in the house also?
my second question is if we do get a divorce, will he be entitled to any equity in the house? like i said we keep separate accounts and i pay the mortgage and all bills out of my account. periodically he will give me a check to help cover all expenses (including childcare for our children) but it usually amounts to maybe 25% of all of our joint expenses not just the mortgage.
