A: Based on your post, you do not have any right to ownership of the home, however if community funds were you for the upkeep and payment (perhaps mortgage) of the house, then you ight be entitled to some reimbursement. Also, you might have an argument for staying in the house until you are divorced, however more information is needed----you really should with a divorce/family lawyer in your area and hire one with whom you are most comfortable. Good luck.
