My husband and i are filing for divorce after 25 years of marriage. due to bad credit the home we purchased was put in his fathers name. i have all the documentation and payment history from the marital bank account to the mortgage account and the original paperwork from the closing as well as signed affidavit from the realtor stating we are the actual owners.will this prove actual ownership?

It will never prove actual ownership. It may prove constructive ownership, but such a case is very difficult to prove. Obviously your spouse and hi Dad will testify that what you say is completely untrue. You need to find anything your husband has filed or form her has completed where he claims he owns the house. You also need to hire an attorney, as this is a case a prose can not really fight. But that is your choice.
