My soon to be ex husband is letting our house go into foreclosure, and he is working. Is this legal?

My husband and I were married for almost 14 years. I have stood at home and raised our children since August of 1997. He walked out on us in August of 2007 so I started working at a local resturant. The children and I have been staying at the house until the divorce is final. I recently got a notice that the house is in foreclosure. Can he do this to the children and I? How could this possible be legal? Any advice that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

  1. You need to call a family law attorney in your area immediately. You do not indicate if there are court orders regarding the house or payments or support. If the house is in foreclosure and there is equity in it, most courts will do what can be done to protect the asset. Call an attorney for a consultation.
