We have been married for a little over a year, no children. I've had my own home for 7 years in another city, he moved 60 miles to be with him, and have been renting the house to make the mortgage payments. I bought a new house in the city two years ago, the mortgage and title are in my name only, before our marriage. Will you have any rights to these properties? He does not want / I can not afford the house we live in now, however, a threat that can take half of the capital, more than half of the shares of my other home. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I've been looking online and see conflicting answers. Some say Iowa is a community property state and all property is divided equally. Some say that property acquired before marriage can not split the circumstances warrant. I'd say it's just to keep my two homes, make more money and all that is in my name. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus We have a few thousand dollars in credit card debt that is in my name only, do not go after him in half. I know that is not going to pay anyway. He did not tell me before we got married (plus they had bad credit from when he was younger), but the student loan company garnish your wages began and achieved with papers from the sentences twice, to my knowledge in previous debts. Everything we have, to utility bills, is in my name. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also, before we got married I bought some things on my own credit card interest without furniture, some furniture, tv, etc shall be entitled to such items if some payments out of our joint account? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus We basically bought anything together since their marriage because he prefers to spend all you have alcohol and gambling. Divide the total of both our paychecks in half, after all, and I make twice. I think it's fair for me to keep these items as they earn more and are bought with a credit card before the wedding. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I think it will go one of two ways, once served the divorce petition. Either ignore it and let it happen, because he is lazy and has no money and no way to get money for a lawyer. Can not get a loan, his family all struggle financially. Or if you can somehow get the money from a friend, will make this unpleasant for me to try to take everything I can.
