  1. No, he sure can't. There are some exceptions and qualifications but generally, everything you both own belongs to both of you. Also, you won't have trouble finding a lawyer to represent you and have him pay for your legal fees.


  2. The issue is NOT when the house was purchased, but rather when it was paid for. For most of us it is paid over time.
