  • Put the house in your dads name only. If your name is on it, it'll be in the divorce. Your husband will have to move out, but good luck getting him out. It takes time to find an apartment and he'll need money for a deposit, etc. Can you afford the mortgage on your own? If I were you, I'd sit tight until I could see where the relationship is going. If it's splitsville, still get dad to buy a house and you move in without him. If it gets better, still have dad buy the house, and you move in together. Either way you're covered in a divorce and there's less chance of having to fight just to get him out.

  • Put it all in your dad's name.

  • put everything in your dad's name. If you do get a divorce, once everything is settled, you can have the deed switched over to your name.

  • Keep it in your dad's name, I bought a house before my first marriage and had it in my dad's name because it was on his property, my ex husband couldn't touch it in our divorce (and boy did he try) because my name was never on it, it was still mine(still is actually), but it was safe because as far as the lawyers were concerned, it belonged to my dad.
