Can spouse get any percentage of my house?

Q: My name has been on deed since 2008, I got married in 2012, and refinanced in 2013. Her name was never on deed and she has never worked or made any payments towards house, can she fight for my house? Also, I have an electrical business, can she get anything from that?

A: She may not be able to “get a share of the house,” but may be able to claim a share of the mortgage principal paid down as well as a share of any capital improvements made on the house. As for the business, one would need to know when it was started & it’s value. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
