Do I have any rights to that property?

My soon to be ex-husband bought a home after we seperated and put on the deed and mortgage that he was a single person. We live in Florida. Do I have any rights to that property?
were common funds that both of you jointly own used towards donwpayment and other closing costs?

Florida is not a community property state. It is an equitable distribution state. Court will decide whether you have any rights over property or not by taking into consideration if any jointly held funds were utilized towards purchase of this property and mortgage payments.

Hi Subtropical,

If your Ex-husband purchased a property after your legal separation then you don't have any right on the property.

Thanks

I they are not legally separated or divorced then financial issues have not been finalized. Florida is a community property state. I think him filing as a single person is fraud to the mortgage company. They should have been informed as they have an interest in the property.

But as far as my knowledge goes it is an "equitable distribution" state.
