The key question is that if you deducted the mortgage interest off your taxes. I would consult a local tax professional for the correct advice.

You are not automatically added to a deed if you husband owned before you married. He would have had to put you on the deed. Go to the County Clerk's Office and ask them to pull the deed for you to see if you are on it. The $8000 tax credit is a great deal; hope you qualify.

Hi Trisha,

One other thing to consider is how long you were married. There are common law rules that might come into play as for as ownership. Check with your divorce attorney.
