Gina Stevenson-Rice Asked:

I was engaged to my husband in 2001. In August 2002 moved into a home. We both paid money at the closing. However my name was never put on the deed or the mortgage. We were married in August 2003. Since then the house has been refinanced 3 times because of my husband's credit card debt. The initial loan was for $109K and is now $192K. In 2007 when we refinanced I signed a homestead waiver, if for any reason he could not pay the mortgage I did not want to be held responsible for the mortgage. He is now in debt again and I am considering a divorce. Even though my name is not on the mortgage or deed and I signed a homestead waiver, do I lose all rights to the property. [Chicago IL]
