A: Additional information is required to properly and accurately answer your question. Since the house was bought during the marriage it would generally be community property. At the least you would have a community lien on separate property. You should contact an experienced family law attorney for a consultation. Most attorney do initial consultations free of charge. Your facts are certainly worth discussing in more detail with an attorney.
