recently married one year. The loan for our house and property in which we live is in my husband's name. Should we divorce is half of it mine or does my name need to appear on the loan as well? Thank you very much!

    Answered . Was the loan in your husbands name prior to the marriage? This would be a factor in what you would be entitled to if any marital growth from the date of your marriage.
