A spouse can always "buy" property individually. However, they would need to have the other spouse sign a deed transferring the property to the next owner OR, if they divorced, they would need to sign over their interest to the spouse.

Because the property would be bought during the marriage, they would have a marital interest in the property.

I am being asked for my spouse to be at closing or sign a document prior to closing. Is this necessary?

The "document" could be that you are "waiving" your marital interest in the property.

Do you know what "document" you are supposed to be signing?
