This question was submitted anonymously to Angela via email:
What my rights are as a wife in terms of the marital home and
property, as my husband claims everything as his as he had been the primary bread winner and paid the mortgage. He is offering to allow me to stay in the house and that he will pay the mortgage in leiu of child support, but only if I give up all right to the house and remove my name from the deed. Looking to see if that is in my best intrest long term as I am unemployed currently. And have no access to any money.
It doesn't matter who has been the primary breadwinner/payer of mortgage. He is, pure and simple, trying to rip you off. This is why he wants your name off the deed.
As to access to money, you will, most likely, need to get a job. Even with child support, it is probably not going to be enough to live on. Start looking now.
