    Lightbulb Divorcing After a Short-Term Marriage

    My question involves a marriage in the state of: Virginia
    what is the likelihood of a wife getting exclusive use of the marital house while litigation is pending and that the husband pays the mortgage? Husband has moved out but comes and goes as pleases. Husband pays utilities and two thirds of the mortgage already, but once litigation starts he might quit paying utilities.
    Only issue is the marital residence.
    NO children.
    H makes close to 50% more than wife.
    parties married for a few years.

    That will depend upon the facts, and the facts will be a lot more complicated than the duration of the marriage.

    The wife should consult a divorce lawyer.
