Q: What are my entitlement as we are now separated for 5 months

My husband bought a house in Georgia less than a month after he gave me a letter to say he was moving out and taking few of his stuff. He bought a house in Georgia and have his ex wife name added to the property because doesn't want me nor our baby to attain any of his assets. His name isn't the front for the property but his social attached him to the house. Am I or our child entitled to any share of this property as he bought it cash with money we had been saving, but he took all the money and paid cash to get it at a cheaper price

A: I am sorry to hear of your ordeal. In order to determine what your entitlement is, the best thing is to have an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial law attorney. It sounds as though marital assets were used to purchase this property. An attorney will also be able to obtain temporary child and spousal support. The attorney will also explain the divorce process to you. Good luck.
