Legal Question

Asked on: 3/24/12, 8:35 pm

I've been the only owner of my home for 15 years and made all of the payments. I was married 4 years ago and refinanced with my husband, still making all of the payments, he contributed to other expenses. We are divorcing and selling the home due to infidelity/alcoholism on his part. Pulling the title work by the realtor, it was realized that a quick claim deed wasn't filed to add his name to the title. He's on the mortgage, but not the title. What right to ownership/equity does he have upon the house selling?

He has any rights that would be afforded to him in the divorce. This asset must be split like any others. The title is not the important thing.
