I have recently filed for divorce, we have been married 2.5 years. My soon to be ex husband owned his own home when we were married and I myself owned land. I used this land to purchase a home 5 months ago, that is deeded and mortgaged only to me. My husband moved out of this home a month ago and I have paid the mortgage on this home on my own from day 1 and he continued to pay the mortgage on his home (though he has tenants who cover the cost) We have no joint credit cards or bank accounts. He does own his own business and I also work. He has threatened to "take me for all I am worth" I am worried to lose my home that my father and i rehabbed. I am under the impression that we really have no assets to divide but I am not sure? I have maintained the financial status of the new home while he has maintained his own. He put the appliances that are in my home onto his credit card and I have paid 3/4 of this back to him. We have had serious issues in our marriage involving rape and emotional abuse and I can not stand to lose my home on top of everything else that is happening.
