Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.
Was the house purchased before or during the marriage?
Ok, thanks for explaining further because that was going to be my next question. If you are able to trace the money from your pre-marital property to this one it will remain your separate property.
Does that answer your question?
It could be deemed marital property and you would have to sell it and split the equity or one person would have to buy the other out.
Could. If you cannot trace the funds you would have to rely on other evidence and it would be up to the discretion of the judge. It is not a black and white issue.
