I LIVE IN ALASKA. MY EX AND I BAUGHT A HOUSE CASH FROM A CAR SETTLEMENT. I PAID $112,500.0 HE PAID $76500.0 THE HOUSE IS IN MY NAME. AND MY NAME ONLY
We lived in the house together for 10 months before ii HAD TO GET A retaining order on him, due to violence and probable of drug use. ( later came out he was using meth) I have copies of his facebook addmitions. I have three kids, and now we have a son together.
when buying the home he said " It feels great to be able to buy my son a home to grow up in"
Now that I will not continue a relationship with him. do to his now know past history with drugs and abuse. He is threatening me with the house.
Dose he have a right to the home?
What legal actions must I take to secure the home for my children to grow up in?
Would a judge, could a judge
As I noted below, your primary concern is with the children. If you have obtained a domestic violence restraining order, he should not be able to threaten you. I assume--if you have a DV order you have sole legal and physical custody. Your concern now would be a support agreement, which, in part, would very reasonably include you keeping the house. I advise strongly you find counsel on this--in my opinion, a judge is needed to solve your matter--given the DV history.
You present an extraordinarily complex question. The answer rests somewhat on whether the property is marital property, became marital property, and what, if anything, was decided by in a prior divorce hearing. Named title counts little, what counts the most is how the home was used. If bought after marriage the house belongs to each of you in proportion to your purchase as tenants in common. However, as you were involved in a domestic relationship a court could still award all or none to either of you. You should seek help from a family law attorney, or check with Legal Services of Alaska to see if they may be able to help.
