What legal rights does a wife have when not listed on the deed or mortgage of the primary residence, purchased prior to the marriage by the husband.
I.e. would the wife be an "owner" if she help pay (from joint bank accounts) the mortgage once married, even if not listed on the deed, tax bills and mortgage?
Researching for IRS purposes.
The deed, tax bills and morgage was not changed due to expense associated.
Thanks in advance for all assistance.
