Who’s has the rights?


I purchased a house before I was married & I am the only one on the titled of the house. I made Majority of the income in the marriage. Does my husband get half of the earrings of the sale of the house? We separated at nine years of marriage.



Your husband does not receive half of the earnings, but he is entitled to some of the sale proceeds based on the payments made during marriage (specifically, the principal loan balance reductions) and a pro rata portion of the appreciation of the house during marriage. This is a complex calculation that would require a lot of data and likely an attorney’s assistance.
