Consult with a local Attorney.
Under FL Law, assets that are acquired during the marriage is considered a marital asset.

This response does not establish an attorney-client relationship. This response does not constitute legal advice.



My concern is that he lives in Texas now. he just up and left me with the kids.. no car, no income, nothing... only reason they have a roof over their heads is cuz my parents have moved us in with them.

Even if a person moves out-of-state, ANY asset acquired during the marriage CAN still be considered marital asset even if you are not on the title/mortgage as my colleague stated. Do you intend to file for divorce? If so, a local family law attorney can help you discuss your options. If one files for divorce, there are certain things you can petition for while the divorce is pending and during the divorce itself. For instance, during divorce proceedings, people can file for Temporary Relief and request Child Support and Alimony.

The best thing to do is Consult with a local Family Attorney who can evaluate your entire situation and give you the best advice for your situation.


If you are still married then yes it can be considered a marital asset even if you are not on the title or mortgage. Contact a local family law attorney to discuss further and provide additional information.

Under your fact pattern, the house would still be marital.

Good luck!
