Hello, my name is Marcus.
I presume you are joint tenants. Is that the case or did one of you put more in than the other reflected in a deed of trust.
What is the house worth and the outstanding mortgage.
Unless you can rehouse with your 50% share of the equity the a sale cannot be forced as you have a child.
You will also be entitled to credit for the mortgage payments you are making known as equitable accounting.
Ultimately when the proceeds are divided equally you can claim from his share a sum equal to the half of the capital element of the mortgage payments you have made.
