My wife and I have been separated for the last year and six months, and we have an 8-year-old son that we share taking care of him. My wife has moved into her own apartment while I’m still in the house. I guess my question is I would like to retain the house or if I decided to sell it can I get a little more scene I been paying all the bills for the last 18 months and if there anything I can do to keep the house because we were not married when we first move in the house and she still has the maiden name on the deed .
To answer your question correctly, I would have to review your Separation Agreement, the judgment of divorce, and any other court orders that may have been issued. You may be entitled to the house. If you are living in the New York City metropolitan area, I strongly suggest that you mediate this matter along with your legal separation and divorce. Please call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss the issue at greater length.
