Q. I got married in November of 2020. I bought my house in 2015 before I met my husband. Can I lose me house in a divorce?
A: As long as you do not put your Husband's name on the Deed, the home will always be a premarital asset and a court would be unable to award your Husband the property. Tat being said, if you are to make payments on the home or make improvement from income which is earned during the marriage, your Husband may be entitled to the increase in equity in your home from both the reduction in the amount owed on the home during the marriage, the increase in value due to improvements and a portion of the passive increases in market value. The only way to protect the home from his interest in increased value, at this point, is to enter into a postnuptial agreement. I suggest you consult a local attorney to discuss your options.
Q. My wife and I have been separated for 6 years. Not divorced just separated. She has a whole new family and I am raising
A: As long as you do not co-mingle the inherited money with other funds that you are presently earning or exist during the marriage (you are still married even though you are separated, the inheritance is non-marital. What this means is money that you have inherited should be placed in a completely separate bank account. If it is in the form of investments or retirement, you should keep a separate account for those funds. This is worth a consultation with an attorney. If you have both moved on, you should further consider ending your marriage. Discuss the pros and cons of remaining married when there is no longer a marital relationship with an attorney as well. I wish you luck.
Q. Do I need a title property lein?
A: Your Final Judgment should act as an official record which puts the public on notice that you have an interest in the property. I agree that you should speak to an attorney and discuss your options with regard to additional public record filings and possibly making a third party claim in the divorce case with your ex-Husband and his new spouse. At a minimum, your attorney should put both your ex-Husband's and his new spouse's attorney on notice that half of the home was awarded to you.
