Worried about my house...
      06/16/08 02:06 AM

I married my wife in 1992. We divorced in 1998. In the settlement I was awarded my house that my grandfather built in 1940. We remarried in 1999 and separated in 2000. She moved out and rented a house. While separated, she retired from her job and took a lump sum pension of approx $183k. This was in August of 2002. In March, April 2003, with the money gone, she moved back in. A couple months later, her youngest daughter 28 now, (the reason we separated in the first place), comes and asks if she can stay for a couple months. She is still here along with her two kids. A month or so later her son shows up, he's 41 now and needs a place to say for a couple months. I let him stay a couple years and put him out. Then her oldest daughter moved in, about 38 now, along with her two kids 18 and 19 now.
My wife is 61 I am 43. I do not have any kids. I currently have all these grown people in my house and I am the only one with a job. I fell a couple years ago and was off work for 1.5 years. Because of that I am currently in a CH13 BK. I am tired of all the BS in my life. I want a divorce but my question is since I was awarded the house from the previous divorce, would the house be considered separate property? I have made sure that she has never had to pay a house note in 16 years. She does however help with utilities. The house is included in and will be paid off through the BK which will discharge in August 2011. I have a base income of 31.85hr plus OT. The BK takes $1198 every two weeks and she gets SSI of approx $1600 per month. Can I keep my house? Seeing how she squandered her pension, I got none of it, would I be liable for alimony?

Sorry for rambling but thank you in advance
