Wife was granted the right to live in house we co-own, am I allowed to seek rent from her boyfriend who recently moved in

Filed under: Divorce

In my divorce agreement my ex wife was granted the right to live in the house we co-own.We share all mortgage and tax costs. Recently her boyfriend moved in. Am I entitled to collect rent from him? Or can she do as she pleases without my consent as an owner? Nothing in my divorce agreement covers this situation.

  1. No. She is an owner and in possession, she can let the circus move in and you have no say.
