I am filing for divorce after 20 years of marriage, the house was bought when we got engaged and we lived together in it and then got married he never put my name on the deed, cause the bank said not to add my name till we were married and then when we were married they wanted to charge a fee, which he did not want to pay, i was a stay at home wife and mom for most of those years. Am i entitled to half the value of the house?There is no mortgage on the house it is paid in full. My husband will not sell the house and we have 2 teenage children that wish to stay in the house, to finish out school. I will be relocating out of state for my job. And if I'm entitled to half the house value, how is the best way to get my husband to pay it?
