I have been separated for 11 months and plan to file for divorce soon. We do not yet have our agreement finalized. My stbx does not realize that he must file a claim for ED and alimony prior to the final divorce judgement and I’m certainly not going to be the one to tell him. He does not have an attorney and is relying on ne and my attorney to make the modifications we agree upon. I am currently living in the marital home where I am the only one on the mortgage while we are both on the deed.
If we get legally divorced without an SA and without a claim for ED, I know he can force me to give him $ for half the equity. That is fine bc that is what I’m trying to do now. On the flip side though, can I force him to take it and to get bought out? Or could he just live happily on the deed with me forever? I guess I’m asking what rights I would have as the person living there to buy the property from him.
