Is it legal for your spouse to sign on your behalf after separation?

I had a house fire and my spouse and I separated. He went ahead and made decisions on the rebuilding of my house without my permission. I did not sign anything.







Bluelady...
Here's what I don't get... Separated or not you wrote: Your house and never gave your permission! So here a real dumb question : Who's the bigger dummy for allowing the fixing to be taking place without the paper work showing JUST your signing authority for JUST your home? Who in their right business frame on mind would even start the job without your ok- Signed sealed and delivered. Not me!!!! To your answer : If you didn't sign then no one can hold you accountable I would guess but then again I'm not a lawyer. Best you get legal advice. Good luck, hope all works out. Maybe your x husband was just looking in your best interest can you two sit down and work it out?

If after the separation the house stayed in your name and he has no claim on the house then he cannot sign on your behalf. I think the best thing for you to do is to talk to your lawyer.

Unless you are "legally" separated, the answer is Yes!

If it's still legally his property, then he has rights to make decisions about it. I don't know what happens if the two owners don't agree, however.

Yes, because you are still married and his name is still on the title.
