  • My Legal Briefcase

    Before we lived together, I owned a house. The house is still in my name and I still pay the mortgage. Marie pays for repairs and upkeep. If we split up, does she have a right to stay in the house?

    Maybe. If a judge orders you to pay support to Marie or for your children, the judge can also decide that Marie can stay in the house. It doesn't matter who owns the house. Marie can also ask you to pay her back for the money she spent on repairs or upkeep to the house. Remember, if you and Marie marry, your rights change.
