Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight. If you purchased this prior to marriage it is your separate property here in NY under the law.She would not have any claim to the property since it is your separate premarital property.The court would award this to you in the event of a divorce.You also would be able to will it to whoever you choose here since it is your property and she has no claim to it since it was separate. I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
