My grandmother added my name and my mother's to the deed to her home in 2003. In June 2007 I married. My grandmother died in July 2007. My mother sold her half to us at $20K below market value in June of 2008. My husband and I split the cost of the mortgage payment, home owners insurance and personal property taxes for two years at which point he left me. Since that time (August 2010) my husband has not paid any mortgage payment or homeowners insurance or personal property taxes. In the divorce he is asking for an appraisal of the house and wants half the appraised value of the home. Will he be awarded this?
