Thank you; so here is the relevant statute:
Essentially property acquired prior to marriage is one's separate property.
For long term marriages, if a loan is taken out and marital property is used to pay down the loan, both parties could receive credit for payments made during the marriage; but for short term marriages the court will typically just confirm the property to be nonmarital.
Further questions? Please post here to continue the chat.
