You said you could help me with this question, but there was nothing there. Are you going to give me an answer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My husband and I live in Utah. My husband and his ex-wife lived in California. I purchased my home in 2000 in my name only. 4 years later I married my husband in Utah. His divorce took place in California.
Expert:  smithlaw1177 replied 2 years ago.
I have a case right now with this same issue. She CAN NOT attach your property so long as it is in your name. If you and your husband were to divorce, then the property would be considered marital property and he would be entitled to half of the equity; however, in this instance she would not be able to attach any liens to your property.

Thank you so much. You have no idea what a relief it is to hear that.
Expert:  smithlaw1177 replied 2 years ago.
Just as a disclaimer of course, my Jurisdiction is not in Utah. Most attorney's give a free consultation and would be glad to look at your case for free. Go to an attorney out there and I promise you will feel even better. Thanks so much. have a great day!
