should the couple divorce, the purchase is considered pre marital and each would be entitled to 50 percent. If purchased during marriage the spouse with less funds may recover more. To the extent any costs relating to the purchase, mortgage will be taken as a tax deduction, filing jointly tends to have an advantage as a married couple.

If before the marriage does the mortgager report the interest to only one?
Does Louisiana law require the home to be titled as tenants in common, rights of survivorship, etc. if before marriage?

Reports to both, but may get a better benefit filing jointly married, and can adjust once married.

If it's not retitled what happens to ownership if one dies?

The law would recognize the survivorship where married when one passed, but always better to have the title cleaned up.

I'm trying to figure out why a real estate attorney getting married wants to close a week before the wedding with no plans to
retitle it.

Perhaps to protect the 50 percent as a pre marital asset in case of divorce.

How does that differ from the outcome of buying after marriage?
After marriage one spouse could try to claim more than 50 percent in divorce.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding "yes" or "acceptable"
