Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, if you lived in the property as your marital residence, you'll have an equitable ownership interest in the property even if it was purchased before the marriage and even if your name doesn't appear on the title or loan documents.
Well, the court would have to equitably divide the proceeds from the sale -- equitably doesn't always mean equally........and the court can consider who paid for the house, who made the down payment (if one), etc., and there could be one spouse that ends up with a larger portion of the proceeds than the other......but usually, courts divide the property equally -- or very close to it.
