Customer Question

I live in Arizona. My husband owned a small farm when we got married 31 years ago. I sold my property in California after we were married and put it into the joint account. We are now talking about a divorce or legal separation. He says that I get nothing from the farm since he owned it before we were married. My name is ***** ***** property as well as his. I have worked since we were married and am still working full time at 71. He retired 17 years ago and has a pension. I have paid for at least 1/2 of the renovations and taxes, etc. on the property for the past 31 years. Is he correct that I have no claim to any of the value of the property?
