    Getting a divorce just found out our property is owned by my husband's mother 10th May 17 at 10:21 AM
    I am in the early stages of getting a divorce I have 2 children with him and we been together for 5 years before I seek professional help I wanted to just ask on here quickly to see what I'm dealing with.

    My husband told me he owned the house before we got married but I just found out he put it on his mother's name before we got married I thought all along he owned the house this has come as a shock to me.

    what does this leave me and my children in terms of a settlement? He said to me he is willing to me put a deposit on a flat but he does not want me to have a share of the property this is what's really hurting me at the moment. Do you I have any chance of getting share of his property since I was working for the 5 years and contributing to the family also.

    I really feel like I been deceived

    Well if she waited to buy a house and spent time of her career or stashing money to buy a house (possible but far fetched) than she would not have had children and missed on that.

    Everybody seems to have missed (or ignored) the bit where OP says she paid for works on the house.

    She shouldn't have paid that, as it's the responsibility of the owner.

    But she did pay it. And she would have a hard and expensive job trying to get any of that money back.
