A: He cannot displace you while you remain married. If a divorce action is filed, the court will decide at that time what will happen with the property. You certainly should meet with competent divorce counsel. When you meet with the attorney, ask him/her to explain the term "condonation" to you. You may be better off than you think.

A: He can’t just make you leave. Going through the divorce process will address this situation. You should consult with an attorney who can help you with the process. The house is likely to be considered marital asset.
