I am considering divorce; hopefully a simplified dissolution of marriage. I am not seeking alimony and we do not have children together (he has children with other women prior to marriage). I purchased my home prior to meeting him and am the only one on the mortgage. Of course, since he (and kids) has been living in the home he has been paying a portion of the mortgage/bills. I do not want to lose my home and will want him out asap. We do not have any other assets or property together (he does not own any property in his name).
Also, we do not have children together (none of my own either), but he has children living in the home with us. I have assisted in their care, but do not seek to have any rights and do not want to be responsible for the care after divorce.
Even if this is simplified, all the other factors have made it complicated. Sit down with a qualified Family Law attorney there in Duvall county. It is likely that the house is premarital, but there may be a marital portion from the time that he has contributed to the bills or upkeep of the house. You would need to have a lawyer go over the Marital Assets and Liabilities and make sure that the proper things are filed to move things along as quickly as possible. You would want to have them file for temporary exclusive use and possession of the property. Again, so many different parts make what could be simple, complex, and while not necessarily expensive, accuracy is going to be key here. Hire competant counsel to protect your interests.
I would need to know a little more about your situation (such as the length of the marriage) but it does seem to be a case which can be quickly resolved. I would urge you to retain a lawyer to help you through this often complex process. I will be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
