  • Rights for what?

    Any law school near you (and Ohio has several) should have a free or discounted legal clinic.

  • What do u mean walked out? R u getting a divorce? The house is not considered community property because he had it before u got married. Unless your name is on the mortgage,it is his free and clear! Why did he leave?

  • If He's been paying off said house with marital money then you're likely going to be entitled to some of it. Get a legal separation agreement ASAP. Make sure it includes a freeze on assets so he can't dump anything or drain bank accounts. Of course you have rights. But the longer you wait the more likely it is that he may do something that jepordizes your ability to claim those rights.
