Married almost 8 years, I am the dependent spouse. We had a mediation and cannot come to any monetary agreement. The home we live in has no mortgage… We bought the land, built the house and the money came from my husband. BOTH of our names are on the DEED… (I am 62 and my spouse is 66)… He has accumulated quite a bit of real estate since we relocated here from the north. I understand that I’m not entitled to any part of those holdings.
We are living under the same roof and he has cut off my health insurance, car insurance, food and gas money… I have very little money left from my social security each month… I want to move in with a friend for a while, since his behavior is unacceptable… I was told to stay where I am by my attorney.
I was told by the mediator, that if I went to court that I’d be entitled to half of what the house is worth. Originally I wanted additional monies, but now want to get out asap. How long does this court process take? How long does it take to get on the docket to Iredell Cty. Is this true about getting half of the value of the house?
