My dh and I might be getting a divorce. We have not been married long and have no kids together. The only thing we own together is the house. That is all I really want if we split. How does that work? And will I have to make the entire house payment? Through the divorce will he have to give me money to afford the house payment or not? Just asking?Answer Question

Most states no longer have alimony (where the husband has to pay the wife). All states have child support, but you do not have children together. If your state doesn't have alimony, then after you divide up your current assets, that's that. That will be all you get.

Most states are 50/50 states, so in that case, you both would be forced to sell the house and split either the profit or the loss. OR like Anon :00 stated, you will have to buy him out of his half of the home if you choose to keep it. Then, it will be your free and clear. If you live in a state that is NOT a 50/50 state, you should probably invest in a lawyer for the divorce.... Since you make so much more money than he does, he may be eligible for alimony by claiming that he was dependent on you for financial support.

You might be better off getting the marriage annulled rather than risking community property. You need a lawyer or he is going to lie and steal from you again!
