A: You do not mention if you are in divorce court. Once a divorce is filed you gain certain protections from the court incident to the divorce. Since your wife's name is on the deed and you are currently married you have a marital interest in the house. This is different than being evicted. Do you have any sort of lease agreement with the in laws? Whose name is on the mortgage? Your question raises several issues that probably cannot be resolved online. Speak with a local real estate or family lawyer for more specific advice.
