What is the name of your state? New York
O.k. Here goes. Going with a women for 10 years. She moved into my house 8 years ago with her kids. We put an addition on the house. Her's and my name on the home equity loan and mortgage now. Then she finds out 5 years ago her name is not on the deed. Dope me puts her name on the deed... We are now in the process of breaking up. We are both professionals and I got transferred 3 hours from home. She is pissed as she wants to hang on to me forever but very dysfunctional relationship. To show me she changed the locks on the house, moved all my stuff into storage,took my guns to the police department.
This has been my house for 15 years and my lawyer said it was illegal for her to do what she did. I have no arrests for anything and have tried to be amicable to end this. Prior relationships of hers ended the same way. My questions.
1. is she entitled to half the house?
2. was it illegal to do what she did?
3. Am I liable to pay the mortage if I am locked out of my house and don't live there
Any helo or suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks for listening
