Yep. Depending on your State’s marital property laws, she might very well be able to get that loan withour you having any say in the matter. I suggest:

  1. Start being very nice to her. Don’t just met her halfway. Just be certain to treat her well, regardless of her behavior. this includes learning to be helpful to her.

  2. Don’t argue with her. If she says something that suggests she’s bothered, use the magic words: “You may be right.” or “I’m sorry you feel that way.”

3, Give her the last word…always. The sooner, the better.

At first she may be a little suspicious that you have another motive. You Do! You want to get along with her and enjoy the benefits of living with her in the house that SHE owns.

The situation:
My wife is the only person on the deed of our primary residence.
I went to the local bank and they told me that she can get heloc without my signature.
Question #1: is this possible?
Question #2: if it possible how can I protect myself from her going behind my back and getting heloc. Given that she will not put me on the deed.

Please help.
