Legal Question

Asked on: 2/21/13, 1:38 pm

I was separated in the process of getting a divorce. My soon to be ex husband bought a house. Because we were not legally divorced at the time he bought the house by Minnesota law should my name by default be put on the title even though I had nothing to do with him getting the house and I did not sign anything for the house.

The "jingle rule" in Minnesota is one to buy and two to sell.

However, the divorce court should allocate ownership as part of resolving the divorce.

Hello. Under Minnesota law, each spouse has an interest in all real estate owned by the other spouse: This interest is known as a 'marital interest'. All real estate of either spouse, or both, is part of the divorce proceedings and must be addressed in the divorce. I advise that an attorney be consulted immediately. I recommend you make several telephone calls in selecting an attorney, because you should feel comfortable and a sense of fundamental trust with the attorney you choose. All the best.
