Dvpo & mortgage


#1

Hello-
dvpo violated twice w/ a court appearance w/ asst. DA scheduled. Not married w/ a 3 yrld. child in common. House mortgage in both names, his folks paid 80k down payment w/no stipulations, lived there 3 years. Can I make him sell the house and get any money?
dvpo was filed in June. I’ve just moved back in w/ my folks to try and save money. Is this now criminal or civil and what type of attorney should I look for since there’s no ‘divorce’?
Any direction would be helpful.

Thank you.

If your ex is violating the DVPO you need to address that with the authorities immediately!
As for the house, if the deed is not in your name you have no ownership rights. The names on the mortgage are not relevant.
